Case CCC to host “p53 and Roundup: Genetic and environmental risk for cancer”

The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) will host its next seminar series event Friday, October 26, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Iris S. and Bert L. Wolstein Research Building auditorium.

The event will feature Yong Li, staff of Cancer Biology at Cleveland Clinic; professor of molecular medicine at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, and member of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Li will present “p53 and Roundup: Genetic and environmental risk for cancer.”

About the speaker

Dr. Li’s research aims to elucidate the role of genetic mutations, microRNAs, and environmental nutrients and xenobiotics in cancer and define the precise molecular and cellular events intersecting with environmental risk factors that are responsible for cancer initiation, progression, and susceptibility and/or affect clinical outcome. The translational objective of his research is to develop novel targeted and immunological therapies and prevention strategies against lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and solid tumors.
