Networking can sometimes seem uncomfortable or transactional, especially to those of us who aren’t naturally extroverted. The fact is, building relationships with others increases trust, leading to buy-in and results. In our research, we find that successful women invest deeply in peer networks. They’re more likely than other STEM women to help peers connect to senior leaders, to risk their own reputations to advocate for the ideas and skills of their peers, and to help them recover their reputations after making a mistake. These are some big risks they take on behalf of their colleagues — demonstrating a deep level of trust that their own reputations won’t be damaged as a result.
Wisdom of Traditional Cultures
Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein, cytoplasmic 1 (PITPNC1), is a member of the class II PITP family which facilitates the reciprocal transfer of phosphatidylinositol (PI) and phosphatidic acid (PA) between the intracellular membrane systems . Recently, PITPNC1 was found to recruit the RAB1B to the Golgi to promote malignant secretion of pro-metastatic factors, and it was also elevated in metastatic breast cancer, melanoma, and colon cancer . In our study, we found that PITPNC1 was upregulated in omental metastatic sites compared with primary lesions in GC, but whether it contributes to omental metastasis remains to be explored.
