Science On Tap

The Greenwood Genetic Center is joining with other local educational institutions and business to bring science out of the laboratories and into the pub!

Dr. Austin Shull, Presbyterian College

Dr. Shull’s research aims to discover novel therapeutic vulnerabilities in cancers by deciphering the underlying genomic signatures that drive specific cancer subsets. Dr. Shull’s current work, which is funded through the NIH-sponsored SC-INBRE program, is directed towards determining the novel DNA methylation events that preferentially exist in breast cancer cells and determining how these signatures provide a prognostic value for breast cancer patients.

This is a free community lecture.
