Lund University Cancer Center Distinguished Seminar

26 feb '15
16:00 - 17:00
Auditorium/Hörsalen, Medicon Village, Scheelevägen 2, Lund
Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, Skåne University Hospital and Medicon Village

Speaker: Jason Carroll, PhD, Research Group Leader, Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, University of Cambridge.

The Carroll lab is interested in understanding how Estrogen Receptor (ER) causes gene transcription and how this contributes to breast cancer progression. Molecular, genomic and proteomic approaches are employed with the goal of identifying the critical determinants of tumor progression and developing novel therapies that specifically target them. In particular, Dr. Carroll focuses identification of ER- and AR- mediated transcriptional targets and on two hormone receptor pioneer factors FoxA1 and GATA3, and is also generating large-scale transcription factor binding maps by ChIP-seq in cell lines and human tissues.

Cheers & Chat after work: Medicon Village invites you to After Work (Cheers and Chat) following the seminar. You are all very welcome!
