[1PW-16] Dormancy as a survival strategy of living organisms

Wed. Nov 28, 2018 3:45 PM - 5:45 PM Room 16 (5F 502)

Organizer:Masahiro Inoue(Kyoto University), Organizer:Yukiko Gotoh(The University of Tokyo)

Co-hosted by: Oxygen Biology, Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas

In nature, living organisms are exposed to various stresses such as hypoxia, poor nutritional supply or low temperature. Suppressing activity, even to the levels of dormancy, is one of the survival strategies. On the other hand, stem cells as well as cancer cells can be dormant. The aim of the session is to compare diverse strategies of suppressing activity or dormancy in various organisms, stem cells, and cancer cells, and hopefully find the common principles.
