Environmental Health Seminar – Roles of BRCA1-BARD1 E3 ubiquitin ligase in genome maintenance and tumor suppression
11:30 AM - 12:20 PM
Miller Plant Science Building

UGA College of Public Health
Environmental Health Science
Spring Seminar Series (EHSC 8030)

Roles of BRCA1-BARD1 E3 ubiquitin ligase in genome maintenance and tumor suppression

This week’s speaker: Weixing Zhao, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Structural Biology, Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute, UT Health at San Antonio

This seminar will take place on Friday, March 29, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. in Room 1501 of Miller Plant Sciences on South Campus. Everyone is welcome to attend! For more information, contact Izzy Vicens.

About the speaker: Dr. Weixing Zhao earned his B.S and Ph.D. from Peking University, China, and received postdoctoral training at Yale University, where he focused on understanding homology-directed repair of DNA double-strand breaks that is dependent on the tumor suppressors BRCA1 and BRCA2. Currently, as a new faulty at Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology and Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute, Dr. Zhao’s research interest is to investigate the BRCA1/2 tumor suppressor networks in various related biological processes (i.e. DNA damage response, DNA repair, cell cycle checkpoints, transcriptional regulation and cellular senescence) and the molecular mechanisms underlying their pathogenic mutations that are associated with cancers and other diseases, with the aim of providing the foundation and impetus for developing new therapeutic regimens.
