A taste of TGFβ in Tuscany

Development. 2012 Feb;139(3):449-53. doi: 10.1242/dev.067249.

Abstract

The recent FASEB Summer Research Conference entitled 'The TGFβ Superfamily: Signaling in Development and Disease' was held in August, 2011 in the spectacular setting of Il Ciocco, Lucca, amidst the olive trees in Tuscany, Italy. The organizers assembled an amazing forum, which included 53 speakers and 67 poster presentations from laboratories around the world, to showcase recent advances made in our understanding of the transforming growth factor-β (TGFβ) signaling pathway.
