Biomedical Seminar Series
October 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
“Targeting the cell cycle as a precision approach to cancer therapy” will be presented by Erik Knudsen, Ph.D., Associate Director for Basic Research, University of Arizona Cancer Center and Professor, College of Medicine, University of Arizona. Erik Knudsen, Ph.D., is an established and highly successful investigator. After training at UCSD and serving five years as a faculty member at the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Knudsen joined Thomas Jefferson University, advancing to Professor of Cancer Biology in 2007. He served as Deputy Director for Basic Research at the Kimmel Cancer Center and Vice Chair for Academic Affairs in the Department of Cell Biology.
His research focuses on cell cycle regulation and the functional role of the Rb protein. Of late, he has become increasingly translational, teaming with Agnes Witkiewicz, M.D., to identify novel biomarkers informative for the prognosis of breast cancer.
The Biomedical Seminar Series is open to everyone on the Spokane campus and video conferencing can be requested for additional campuses if needed. For questions, contact Breezy Tottenhoff.
