Autophagy, or cellular self-eating, has been cropping up in almost every aspect of cell physiology and development. Autophagic dysfunction is closely connected to cancer, infectious disease, neurodegeneration, and aging. Are you curious how the bewildering explosion of autophagic data impinges on your favorite system? Do you wonder about the molecular mechanisms behind this bizarre pathway? Or would you just like to spend a day hearing about cutting edge mechanistic biology and physiology from some of the best speakers in the field? Then please plan to attend the 2015 Cell and Developmental Biology Division Symposium.
