Cancer Center Seminar Series: Imaging Protease Activity in Cancer and Inflammation
Friday, March 9
Please join us March 9 for the next Cancer Center Seminar Series where Dr. Matthew Bogyo, Associate Professor of Pathology at Stanford University, will present Imaging Protease Activity in Cancer and Inflammation.
Dr. Bogyo's interests are focused on the use of chemistry to study the role of proteases in human disease. In particular his laboratory is currently working on understanding the role of cysteine proteases in tumorgenesis and also in the life cycle of the human parasites, Plasmodium falciparum and Toxoplasma gondii.
