    Speaker: Shannon M. Mumenthaler, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Medicine - USC Westside Prostate Cancer Center

    Talk Title: TBA

    Abstract: TBA

    Biography: Dr. Mumenthaler is an Assistant Professor of Research Medicine at the CAMM. She received a B.S. in Genetics from UC Davis and a Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Pathology from UCLA. Although her primary scientific training is in cell biology, Dr. Mumenthaler applies a unique multidisciplinary approach toward her research program, partnering with mathematicians, clinicians, and engineers to explore critical areas in cancer. Her current research interests focus on the development of tools to better understand the evolutionary dynamics of tumor progression and drug resistance with specific investigations into the influence of microenvironmental selective pressures on tumor cell behavior. Toward this goal, Dr. Mumenthaler is closely collaborating with mathematical modelers to combine novel computational platforms with diverse experimental measurements to test and refine biological hypotheses and make clinically relevant predictions.

    Host: Brent Liu, PhD

    Location: Corwin D. Denney Research Center (DRB) - 145A
