Harnessing Chemical Biology for Cancer Drug Discovery With Michael Erb

Video   Oct 19, 2020 | Taken from Scripps Research, YouTube

 

Gene regulation is the study of how cells turn certain genes on or off and plays a central role in the development and treatment of cancer. In this Front Row lecture, Assistant Professor Michael Erb will share his research applying chemical tools to study how chromatin, a molecular machine that plays a key role in transcription, becomes disrupted in cancer. He will discuss his research developing small molecule drugs targeting these genetic malfunctions.
