The first ‘Science on Tap’ of 2020 will be held on Tuesday, January 14th at 6pm at Howard’s On Main in Uptown Greenwood. The January event will feature Austin Shull, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biology at Presbyterian College. He will present “The War on Cancer: A Battle with Many Fronts.”
Dr. Shull’s research aims to identify novel cancer therapies by studying genomic signatures within specific cancer subgroups. Dr. Shull’s current work of studying DNA methylation in breast cancer cells is funded through the NIH-sponsored SC-INBRE program.
The presentation will be followed by time for discussion and questions.
Science on Tap is a community lecture series hosted by the Greenwood Genetic Center to highlight scientific work and expertise in the Greenwood area. “This program originated as a way for local scientists from a variety of disciplines to share their expertise in an informal and accessible way with the broader Greenwood community,” said Leta Tribble, Director of Education at the Greenwood Genetic Center.
The public is invited, and the event is free to attend. For more information visit www.ggc.org/science-on-tap
