Molecular Medicine & Pathology seminar: Imaging Cell Migration and EMT in Zebrafish: Implications for Human Disease Event as iCalendar

25 March 2014

3:30 - 4:30pm

Venue: Seminar Room 501-505, Building 501, 85 Park Road, Grafton

Anna Huttenlocher is the Vilas Professor in the Departments of Medical Microbiology and Immunology and Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is a physician scientist who sees patients with autoimmune disease and primary immunodeficiency disorders.  She is Director of Pediatric Rheumatology and Director of the Medical Scientist Physician Training Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Dr. Huttenlocher’s research focuses on understanding the basic molecular mechanisms that regulate directed migration of cancer cells and the chemotaxis of leukocytes using both in vitro and in vivo model systems with zebrafish. She will discuss recent progress imaging cell migration in zebrafish with a focus on epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the role of the tumor microenvironment.
