Benard Futscher to present “Weeds in the Garden: Destruction of Epigenetic Landscape in Cancer”
I came across this doozy of a talk on the MSTP calendar. Dr. Futscher is an Assistant Research Scientist and Investigator in the Center for Toxicology at the University of Arizona and has a list of interesting recent publications.
- Epigenetic mediated transcriptional activation of WNT5A participates in arsenical-associated malignant transformation. Toxicol Appl Pharmoc, 2008
- Agglomerative epigenetic aberrations are a common event in human breast cancer. Cancer Research, 2008

Dr. Futscher will be presenting this talk as part of the Free Radical and Radiation Biology Seminar Series on Thursday, February 5th at 11:30 in the Watzke Aud 3, BSB
