Justina D. McEvoy, PhD
Regulation of Differentiation Pathways in Developmental Tumors
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Developmental Neurobiology, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee
2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016
Dr. McEvoy’s research program is focused on the regulation of differentiation and proliferation during normal development and tumorigenesis. She has developed two projects to study gene regulation and epigenetic modifications in both normal and diseased tissue from retinoblastoma and other pediatric solid tumors. In her presentation, she will discuss data from these studies that will be used to shed light on fundamental mechanisms of normal development and possibly to provide novel therapeutic approaches.
