TGF-beta signaling regulation and outcome in ALD

The second seminar of the 2018/19 academic year 

The LiverSeminars Program is an educational activity in which experts in the Hepatology field will come to one of the two organizing institutions (IDIBAPS in Barcelona, IiSGM in Madrid) to spend a whole day sharing basic and translational science. Visits will always have the same agenda: during the morning, the Expert will be able to meet in private with scientists from research centres geographically close to the Institution that welcomes him (please book your time slot at the “meet the speaker” tab), in the afternoon we will have the seminar itself that will be live broadcasted to the Institute that does not host the speaker. Please note that activities are not restricted to the personnel from the organizing institutions. In this page you will find detailed information about the invited Speakers and scientific topics that will be covered during this academic year.

Steven Dooley is University Professor and Head of Section of Molecular Hepatology & Alcohol Associated Diseases in the Department of Medicine II at the Medical Faculty Mannheim, at Heidelberg University. Prof. Dooley graduated in Biology at the University at Kaiserslautern and did his PhD studies at the Institute of Human Genetic, University of Saarland in Homburg. His Postdoc research on Molecular Cancer Research took place at the Institute of Human Genetics at the same University. Later in 1998, he became Group Leader and Assistant Professor in the Department of Clinical Chemistry and Pathobiochemistry at the University Hospital RWTH Aachen. In 2004, he was appointed as a full Professor to Heidelberg University.
Prof. Dooley received the Gábor-Szász-Award of the Deutsche Vereinte Gesellschaft für Klinische Chemie und Laboratoriums-Medizin for outstanding scientific merits. He has over 140 publications and his work is supported by different grants from DFG, BMBF Virtual Liver and LiSyM Networks as well as the IT Liver Consortium (Marie Curie ITN, EU). His research is dedicated to cellular processes that occur in the liver in response to alcohol abuse, specifically in the role of TGF-β family members, their signaling pathway regulators and target genes.
