Genome-Wide Mapping of DNA Damage and Repair Caused by Environmental Carcinogens
This week’s speaker: Wentao Li, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Environmental Health Science, College of Public Health, University of Georgia
This seminar will take place on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 11:30 a.m. in Aderhold Hall on South Campus, Room G5. (NOTE: New Location!!). Everyone is welcome to attend! For more information, contact Darien Bush.
Dr. Wentao Li is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Science at the University of Georgia College of Public Health. He earned his PhD in Biomedical and Veterinary Medical Sciences from Louisiana State University. Dr. Li did his post-doctoral training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Li’s research focuses on the mechanisms of DNA damage and repair and how they contribute to cancer mutagenesis. He has developed a next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based method for mapping environmental carcinogen-induced DNA damage formation and repair. Dr. Li has a broad expertise in DNA damage, DNA repair, and cancer mutagenesis.
