Post-translational modifications: The therapeutic potential

Post-translational modifications: The therapeutic potential

Distinguished Lecture Series in Experimental Therapeutics

Synopsis:

Dr. Pandita's research employs radiation genetics and biology to study the  relationships between DNA sequence, chromatin structure and sensitivity to ionizing radiation (IR). The long-term goal of the research projects is to understand the mechanistic role of chromatin structure in  regulating the cell survival response to IR-induced DNA damage. This knowledge base will be used by the laboratory to develop clinically relevant methods to increase tumor cell response to IR-based therapies while decreasing injury to adjacent, normal tissue.
