Novel radiation mitigators and Anticancer drugs

April 16, 2015
I work in radiation-induced effects and in the area of genetic toxicology. We work on DNA damage and cancer induced by high and low LET radiation and chemical toxins. One important contribution of my laboratory is related to genotoxicity testing that uses a short-term test that predicts whether any given chemical may cause cancer. We have developed assays for DNA deletions (DEL assays) that detect cancer-causing chemicals that are negative with other tests including the Ames Assay, the most widely used short-term test for carcinogens.

Part I) Fluorescent detection sheds light on inflammation-induced mutation risks, Part II) CometChip: Using engineering principles to bring the comet assay to the 21st Century

May 21, 2015
Major goals of the Engelward laboratory are to contribute to our understanding of factors that impact genomic stability through basic research, and through the development & application of novel technologies. We have genetically engineered two mouse models that enable direct visualization of cells that harbor rare genetic changes in situ.

DDT Exposure and Thermogenesis: The Link Between DDT, Obesity and Diabetes?

April 30, 2015
About the Lecture: Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) has been used extensively to control malaria, typhus, body lice and bubonic plague worldwide, until countries began restricting its use in the 1970s. Its use in malaria control continues in some countries according to recommendation by the World Health Organization. Individuals exposed to elevated levels of DDT and its metabolite dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) have an increased prevalence of obesity, diabetes and insulin resistance.
