Dr. Deliang Guo to receive SNO Young Investigator Award!


 

 

Deliang Guo, PhD. has been selected to receive the SNO Young Investigator Award for Basic/Translational Research! His abstract, "Lipid metabolism reprogramming in Glioblastoma and serving as promising target" will be featured as a platform presentation at the upcoming 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) on Friday, November 20th, 20th in San Antonio, Texas.

 

 

 

 

Abstract Information
Dysregulated metabolism emerges as a new hallmark in malignancies. Understanding the underlying molecular mechanism of metabolic reprogramming is critical to identify effective therapeutic strategies to treat cancers. Recently Dr. Guo's research team uncovered that lipid metabolism is reprogrammed in glioblastoma, and identified that sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP) clevage-activating protein (SCAP), a central player in lipid metabolism, integrates oncogenic signaling and SREBP-1 signaling represents a novel therapeutic straregy to treat malignant gliomas.
