Invitation: Talk by Marek Mlodzik about Wnt/PCP signaling, on 18. 11. 2021

with No Comments

We would like to cordially invite you to a talk by Marek Mlodzik, a leading expert in the field of Wnt/PCP signaling:

Marek Mlodzik – Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, USA

Prof. Marek Mlodzik will give his talk Wnt/Frizzled Planar Cell Polarity signaling in development and disease on November 18, 2021​ as a part of Mendel Lectures.

When: 18. 11. 2021, 17:00
Where: Mendel´s refectory in the Mendel Museum Brno

In the past 20 years his work focused on the molecular mechanisms of Wnt/PCP (Planar Cell Polarity)-signaling and how this regulates cell polarity and cell migration in development and disease. Most recently the research focus also addresses the role of ciliary proteins in non-ciliated contexts, and the role of the ciliary transport complex in the cytoplasm and in nuclear translocation of b-catenin. His research studies also the mechanisms of how the Wnt and Notch signaling pathways interact in normal organogenesis and patterning and disease contexts, including cancer, neural tube closure defects, and ciliopathies.


Before entering the lecture, you must meet at least one of the following conditions:

a) O-N-T system – vaccination (at least 14 days have passed since the last dose of the vaccine), tests ((a)has undergone RT-PCR test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus with a negative result no more than 72 hours ago, or (b) has undergone RAT test for the presence of SARS CoV-2 antigen with a negative result by a healthcare professional max. 24 hours ago) , or having Covid-19 in the past (since the first positive POC antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 virus or RT-PCR test for virus SARS-CoV-2 no more than 180 days have passed).

b) You prove that you underwent a preventive antigen self-test on the spot with a negative result or that you underwent a rapid antigen test (RAT) supervised by a health care professional through an online service not more than 24 hours ago with a negative result.
