Dr. Amri will present her patented work on Phylomics: An Evolution-Based Data Mining Tool for Biomarkers (Synapomorphies) Discovery and Early Cancer Detection at the 4th International Congress on Analytical Proteomics on September 7-9 in Caprica, Portugal.
Dr. Hakima Amri invited to participate in the first international working group on PhyloOncology, sponsored by the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) at Duke University, NC and the National Science Foundation.
Shannon Larabee, a former student in the Special Masters Program in Physiology who is now an M3 here at GUMC recently published a paper as first author in Stem Cells and Development. The paper highlights how microRNAs function in early mammalian development to control critical intracellular signaling mechanisms important for the developmental stage called gastrulation. If gastrulation is not regulated properly by these miRNAs, differentiation of cells is impaired resulting in improper formation of organs. Shannon's tenacity and hard work really paid off with a really nice investigation, says Dr. G. Ian Gallicano, the senior author.
