Mission & Goals
CIHR training programs build capacity in the research community to address complex biomedical, environmental, and social problems that affect the health and well-being of Canadians. Cell Signals seeks to educate a new generation of investigators who will apply interdisciplinary approaches to generate new concepts of management for inflammatory conditions and associated pain by targeting the cell signaling systems from which they arise.

- Cell-Signaling Molecules Show Potential For Slowing Down CancerResearchers at the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center knew they were on to something big when they embarked on a series of studies involving the effects of specific genetic material on tumors. The research team from the NYU Langone Medical Center was after all familiar with the potential of genetic material–specifically the non-coding variety–for tumor treatment.
- Notch Cell Signaling Pathway Linked To Brain Tumors In ChildrenIn one of the latest developments in cell signaling research, the cell communication pathway known as Notch has been linked to a type of brain tumor that occurs in children. In a study recently published in the Journal of Neuropathology & Experimental Neurology, it was announced that Notch genes were ‘overexpressed’ in cases of pilocytic astrocytoma.
- Cell-Signaling Pathways May Be Crucial To Immunosuppressive TherapyIn yet another step forward in cell signaling research, scientists at the Paola Castagnoli research group recently discovered a signaling network located in blood-forming cells. Based on the results of the study commissioned by the A*STAR Singapore Immunology Network, cell signaling pathways may be crucial in the development of more effective immunosuppressive treatments that involve the controlling of pathways in a bid to encourage the growth of infection fighting immune cells.
- Cell-Signaling May Effectively Halt Melanoma SpreadIn one of the most extensive studies on the effects of cell signaling molecules in melanoma tumors, researchers at the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center of NYU’s Langone Medical Center have discovered two bits of non-coding genes in primary melanoma tumors that appear to slow down the progression of the disease. With these findings, medical science takes an important leap forward in finding a way to slow down–if not entirely halt–the spread of cancer.
- Palliative Care is More than Just HospiceMost hospitals and care facilities offer the option of palliative care to patients suffering from severe or chronic illness. This can be scary and confusing to patients and their families because palliative care is often associated with end-of-life care. Palliative treatment provided at the end of a person's life when curative treatments have been suspended is called hospice, but hospice is not the only type of palliative treatment available to patients.
- Retiring in Kingston OntarioKingston is one of the cities that reflects a significantly larger demographic of seniors. This is a reflection of the city’s efforts to create a friendly environment for seniors that consists advanced Retirement Homes Kingston and plans to develop the city using a framework formulated by the World Health Organization’s global network of age-friendly cities.
