About the Conference
Phosphatases are critical components of cell signaling pathways controlling physiological events such as cell division or cell fate decision and the missregulation of its activity has been linked to several human diseases. Europhosphatase 2017 will put special emphasis on phosphatases in cell fate decision. Major issues like neuronal and hematopoietic specification of stem cells by phosphatases will be tackled along with a state-of-the-art overview of recent discoveries on the role phosphatases in new signaling pathways and its regulation.
