Chemistry Club & STEM Academy Present: Seminar: Pathways to Cell Death by Dr. Shu-Yuan Chen, Assistant Professor of Toxicology, John Jay College of Criminal Justice/CUNY Seminar: Cell death, which could be passive or active, is regulated by many different and complex pathways. Passive cell death, as a consequence of severe damage to the cell's structural integrity is uncontrolled and detrimental to the organism. Active cell death, which is a more confined biological disruption, such as, DNA damage, is well regulated to support the organism's life. Various types of cell death have been discovered and studied, such as, necrosis, apoptosis, senescence, and autophagy. Unveiling the cellular responses to chemicals will enhance the understanding of the toxicological and pharmacological mechanisms regulated by these. This will shed a light into disease prevention or therapy.
