A tutorial in my laboratory would be directed at gaining a familiarity with procedures necessary to answer a defined question in these areas of interest:

  • cellular and molecular responses to DNA damage by anticancer drugs
  • development and validation of strategies for dysregulation of cell cycle checkpoint pathways and for inhibition of DNA repair mechanisms
  • investigations of the signaling pathways that lead to cell death as a consequence of these events
