Brief description Cell death is essential for cell and tissue homeostasis and its dysregulation is associated with many diseases. We discovered a new mode of cell death that involves autophagy. We have now identified that TGF-? signalling pathway, which has roles in numerous human pathologies, is involved in autophagy-dependent cell death. Our proposed studies will further characterise this important signalling axis and study its significance in development, normal physiology and disease.
