We are pleased to announce that Susana Gonzalo, Ph.D., is joining the Department as Assistant Professor, effective April 2012. Dr. Gonzalo is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine.
Susana is an established investigator studying the causes of genomic instability in aging and cancer. Her research focuses on understanding how alterations in nuclear structural proteins and chromatin structure impact DNA repair and telomere biology. Identification of novel molecular pathways contributing to genomic instability can eventually be used as therapeutic targets for the treatment of disease.
