Glucose and amino acid metabolism in cancer
December 5, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Jason Locasale, PhD, Associate Professor, Dept. of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology, Duke University
UNC LINEBERGER CANCER CENTER WEEKLY SEMINAR PRESENTATION
Jason W. Locasale, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor at Duke University in the School of Medicine. He received his Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He then conducted postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School as an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow and later as an Instructor on the faculty in the Department of Medicine.
Dr. Locasale has pioneered the use of metabolomics approaches to study cancer biology and metabolism. He has made seminal contributions to our understanding of metabolism including the role of serine synthesis in cancers, defining the quantitative, mechanistic principles of altered glucose metabolism in cancer, and the role of metabolism in mediating chromatin status and epigenetics. He has authored over 120 publications in peer reviewed journals.
