Marco Bisoffi, PhD
, will present “Using Analogs of the Natural Product Curcumin to Combat Prostate Cancer Cells”. Prostate cancer cells rely on several molecular pathways for their growth and survival. These pathways have been identified as points of “oncogenic addiction.” One such pathway is androgen signaling through the androgen receptor triggered by testosterone. The talk will address how curcumin analogs efficiently inhibit prostate cancer cell growth.
Each semester, Schmid College of Science and Technology hosts its Science Forum Series. Faculty and special guests present their latest research to the campus community. Each presentation is approximately 45 minutes to one hour in length. Feel free to drop in and leave as your schedule permits. Light refreshments will be served.
