Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
  Identification of the cellular targets of the Malaysian phytochemical pentamethoxyflavone, a candidate agent for the chemoprevention of colorectal cancer
  Dr C Serpell, Prof M Garrett
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) has risen at an alarming rate in Malaysia, becoming the second most common cancer in males and third most common in females.
