The article highlights the CSCI/CIHR Young Investigators' Forum held in Vancouver, British Columbia on September 22, 2005. Different topics were discussed at the conference. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine produced by macrophages, lymphocytes, fibroblasts and other cell types, and is involved in regulating many important physiological functions, including inflammation. TNF activates both cell death and survival signals, and has been implicated in promoting both tumor death and tumor growth. Socioeconomic factors influence health status in myriad ways. Although difficult to quantify and define, the effects of social status, economic agency and interpersonal power dynamics exert no less an influence on health than do factors such as availability of housing and access to health information.
