mTOR Signaling in Growth and Metabolism: How an Unhealthy Diet Causes Diabetes

Organised by New York University Abu Dhabi Institute

TOR (Target of Rapamycin) is a highly conserved protein kinase that controls a wide range of metabolic processes.

More importantly, TOR is a central controller of cell growth that plays a key role in development and ageing. Dysregulated mTOR (mammalian TOR) is implicated in many disorders including cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

The aim of this group's research is to elucidate the mechanisms by which mTOR signaling is regulated and how it controls processes in both health and diseases.
