Insights into the Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases in Health & Disease

Organised by:

SCI's Biotechnology Group in conjunction with the University of Westminster

University of Westminster

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

The family of protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) play critical roles in celluar signalling pathways and are recognised as potential drug targets in diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. However, development of therapeutics targeting the family of protein tyrosine phosphatases has lagged far behind that of kinases. We have been investigating the structure, function and regulation of this family of enzymes and are exploring strategies for inhibiting PTPs. In addition, receptor-type PTPs are poorly understood and recent development in theis area will be discussed.
