The University of Toledo is hosting the 23rd Annual International CEA Symposium that is bringing medical researchers from around the world to the city to discuss their work.
The symposium is taking place Friday through Sunday, Aug. 16-18, in the Park Inn Hotel in downtown Toledo.
The Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) was discovered in 1965 and since then has been an important diagnostic and prognostic marker of tumor progression. In addition to their cell adhesion function, CEA proteins regulate diverse cellular processes.
These regular symposia allow scientists to get together to discuss the functions of this family of proteins and generate collaborations.
The conference is organized by the UT Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Research. Click here for more information.
