Courtney Andersen studies the role of estrogen receptor-alpha in ovarian cancer.
Chris Barnes investigates the structural details by which transcription factor activity regulates RNA Polymerase II during the universal process of eukaryotic gene expression.
Matthew Hedberg uses whole exome sequencing of human tumors, paired with functional studies in preclinical models of HNSCC, to define the genetic alterations underlying this disease, and identify new therapeutic targets.
Soma Jobaggy studies nitrated fatty acid pharmacology and the antioxidant response in hypertensive end-organ damage.
Allison Nagle studies growth factor receptor signaling in breast cancer.
David Osei-Hwedieh studies how hemoglobin mutations such as sickle cell trait affect red blood cell storage integrity and post transfusion survival.

Graduated: 2011
Dissertation:
Demonstrating functional crosstalk between DNA base excision repair and cellular bioenergetics: A strategy for the treatment of chemotherapy resistant glioblastoma


After graduation, in their own words:

My post doc is going very well so far. I am learning a lot and the genetic screen my project is built around is already giving interesting results. I am applying to several of the prestigious cancer fellowships now and hope I can secure individual funding at some point this year. Either way I think this will be a very productive position for me.
