|Translational Regulation Controls Fundamental Processes Required for Cell Division: Dr. Craig Stumpf|
|Criag R. Stumpf, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Urology at
the University of Californa - San Francisco will be presenting a Special
Seminar for the Cancer Biology Seminar Series on Thursday, May 22 at 4:00pm in
the Rieveschl Auditorium at the Vontz Center for Molecular Studies. Dr.
Stumpf is a Faculty Candidate in the Department of Cancer Biology. Dr.
Stumpf, while in the laboratory of Dr. D. Ruggerio, studies mechanisms
governing translational regulation of specific mRNAs. Using genome-wide
ribosomal profiling he discovered widespread translational regulation of
hundreds of of mRNAs as a mechanism for gene regulation underlying cell-cyle
progression, maintenance of genomic stability, metabolism and cell signaling.
The title of Dr. Stumpf's seminar is "Translational Regulation Controls
Fundamental Processes Required for Cell Division".
