The Cancer Chemoprevention Research Interest Group in collaboration with the Gastro Intestinal Oncology Tumor Program announces the first in a series of Cancer Chemoprevention Colloquiums.
Dr. Shrikant Anant, PhD will present the first lecture in this series entitled, “Stem Cells and Cancer Chemoprevention: Let's Take it Up a Notch” on August 29th, 2013 from 12 – 1 pm in the Ted and Marty Couch Auditorium.
Dr. Shrikant Anant is a pioneering biologist, who joined The University of Kansas Cancer Center in July 2010. He is currently a Kansas Mason Professor for Cancer Research, Associate Director for Prevention and Cancer Control at the University of Kansas Cancer Center and Associate Dean for Research at the University of Kansas. Dr. Anant’s research is focused on various aspects of cancer biology at the molecular level. Specific research areas include: (a) Regulation of gene expression at the levels of mRNA stability and translation, (b) Cancer Stem Cells, and (c) mechanism(s) of chemoprevention by dietary factors and its novel derivatives
