Biomedical Seminar Series

April 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Noon – 1 p.m., SAC 345 or Zoom 

Kyle Miller, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor at University of Texas Austin in the Department of Molecular Biosciences. His seminar is titled, Protecting the integrity of the genome: chromatin, cancer and DNA damage up proteins.

Description: Miller’s research aims to understand genome maintenance and the DNA damage response in the context of chromatin, cancer and anticancer therapies. Miller’s team has identified several new DNA damage response factors, including many bromodomain acetylation reader proteins that orchestrate genome integrity mechanisms through chromatin. In collaboration with several other research groups, Miller’s team has identified a new class of cancer genes, “DNA damage up proteins,” that regulate endogenous DNA damage and contribute to mutagenesis and cancer through several biological pathways. Miller will present his current research into chromatin mechanisms of DNA damage responses and DNA damage up proteins, including their potential involvement in cancer and its treatments. 

Please sign up here for a one-on-one meet with Dr. Miller.  For questions, reach out to Breezy Tottenhoff at biomedsci.medicine@wsu.edu.
