Gonzalo presents as part of Breast Cancer Symposium Seminar Series

As part of the Fall 2013 Breast Cancer Symposium Seminar Series, Susana Gonzalo, PhD will present her talk “Common pathways in laminopathies and breast cancer provide new opportunities for therapy,” on Monday, October 28, 2013 in the Urmila Sahai Seminar Room (2114 MERF) from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event is sponsored by the University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Gonzalo is an assistant professor in the Edward A. Doisy Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. The team at Gonzalo’s laboratory works to understand the functional interplay between alterations of nuclear architecture and chromatin structure as well as increased genomic instability that are associated with aging and cancer. Their ultimate goal is to identify molecular pathways that can be targeted in cancer therapy as well as in the amelioration of aging-related phenotypes.
