Chromosome repair and segregation mechanisms: From cancer biology to therapy

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Ashok Venkitaraman

Department of Oncology, Hutchison / MRC Research Centre. Cambridge, UK

Venkitaraman, from the MRC Cancer Cell Unit at the University of Cambridge, UK, is interested in understanding how cells maintain normal chromosome structure and number, but also in translating this knowledge to improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment. He employs a wide range of approaches from molecular cell biology and somatic cell genetics, to structural biology, biophysics, imaging and chemical biology. He has been invited by José Yelamos (IMIM).
