Mentor: Laura Attardi, Radiation Oncology

Michael's research in Dr. Attardi's lab focuses on elucidating pathways through which the protein p53 regulates tumor suppression. Specifically, he is interested in the role that Pard6g, a known regulator of cellular polarity, plays in mediating p53 tumor suppressor function.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2014:
