Chromatin Dynamics and Epigenetic Regulation in Cancer
Conference Recording Jun 30, 2013
About the Speaker
Dr. Baek’s work is focused on the chromatin dynamics and epigenetic regulatory mechanism in cancer. She received her BS, MS, and Ph.D degrees from Seoul National University. Following her postdoctoral research in Michael Rosenfeld’s lab at HHMI and following research assistant professor at HHMI, she joined the faculty of Seoul National University in 2003, and now works as an associate professor. Dr. Baek received numerous awards and honors, including the L’OREAL-UNESCO for Women in Science Award. She has been invited as a managing editor for BBA Molecular Basis of Disease and a guest Editor for Annual Review of Physiology.AbstractIn this presentation, I will discuss our continued efforts to decipher epigenetic regulatory mechanism of new tumor and metastasis suppressor genes and their coregulators. I will introduce newly identified signaling crosstalk regulated by protein modification and address their roles in cancer.
