Sylvester’s Dr. Francisco Vega speaks at Karolinska Institute in Sweden
As part of a research collaboration, Francisco Vega, M.D., Ph.D., a lymphoma expert at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, was recently invited to speak at the Department of Oncology-Pathology at the renowned Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. During his presentation on June 17, Vega spoke about “Cross-Talk Between Hedgehog and NF-kB Pathways: A Novel Finding in the Pathobiology of Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma with Potential Therapeutic Implications.”
“It was a true honor to be invited to speak to world-class cancer researchers at such a renowned organization,” said Vega, who is also professor of pathology. “One of our goals at Sylvester is to form more collaborations with colleagues across the nation and around the world to accelerate our research. I’m excited to work with our esteemed colleagues at Karolinska to characterize the genomic and transcriptomic landscape of lymphomas.”
The talk and the research collaboration with the Karolinska Institute build on a scientific study Vega and colleagues published earlier this year about the molecular signals that drive lymphoma. More information about the study is available here.
