On May 14th a lecture by one of the most quoted scholar of our time, Geoffrey Burnstock, took place. Geoffrey Burnstock is the president of Autonomic Neuroscience Center at the University College London Medical School and also the Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Purinergic Signalling. Dr. Burnstock has already spent decades studying the “fuel” for living cells, a molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). On the basis of that research, he made discoveries that can be used in the treatment of a variety of diseases and disorders.
At the Digital October center, professor Burnstock shared his invaluable experience and knowledge. He discussed the discovery of “purinergic nerve cells” and their application in modern medicine. Geoffrey Burnstock presented evidence that nerve cells secreting ATP may be responsible for the communication between motor neurons and muscles.
Modern medical developments in the protection against cancer have been based upon this research. ATP is able to destroy cancer cells, which may lead to the creation of drugs that can target a single organ or tissue and be used for the healing of wounds and much more.
A roundtable discussion by Russian experts continued Geoffrey Burnstock’s lecture.
