The Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University presents

The Coleman Foundation Symposium in the Basic Sciences:

   THE REGULATION OF CELL GROWTH

Monday/Tuesday, Sept. 18-19th, 1995
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

The two day symposium will focus on the topics of receptors and signals,
cytoplasmic mediators, cell cycle control and transcription.  Registration
fees are extremely modest (less than $50.00).  Participants are invited to
present posters.

Preliminary Schedule:

Monday, Sept. 18th:

Andrius Kazlauskas "Signal transduction by the PDGF receptor"
Kelly Mayo         "Growth hormone-releasing hormone and its receptor in
                   the regulation of cell growth"
Jim Ihle           "Signaling by the Cytokine Receptor Superfamily"
Martine Roussel    "Receptor signalling and G1 progression"
George Vande Woude "Mos: Meiosis and transformation"
Sara Courtneidge   "Src family kinases and the cell cycle"
Owen Witte         "Role of cytoplasmic tyrosine kinases in human leukemia
                   and immunodeficiency"

Tuesday, Sept. 19th:

Richard Treisman   "The serum response element and the regulation of
                   c-fos transcription"
Geoffrey Wahl      "Cell cycle control of genetic stability"
Barbara Graves     "Molecular Basis of Inhibition of Ets-1 DNA Binding"
Edward Ziff        "Gene regulation by growth factors"
Tom Kadesch        "Immunoglobulin gene transcription and B cell development"
Scott Ness         "Myb: Regulation of transcription and differentiation"
