Friday Science Seminar: Dioxin, Clocks and Oxygen: How Mammals Sense and Respond to Environmental Change

Join us in welcoming Dr. Chris Bradfield, Professor of Oncology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research, as he discusses how mammals sense and respond to environmental change. Christopher Bradfield received his Ph.D. in Toxicology/Nutrition from the University of California, Berkley. He is currently a professor of Oncology with the University of Wisconsin, Madison, McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research. He is also Genetics Program member—UW Carbone Cancer Center. His laboratory research focuses on a family of transcriptional regulators known as PAS proteins. Current areas of interest include the use of gene-targeting to generate informative bHLH-PAS loci and the use of more classical transgenic approaches to construct murine models that will help us characterize the mechanisms that underlie the toxicological and developmental effects of halogenated aromatics like dioxin. 

This is a free event and open to the public. Please visit our website to learn more about our future lecture series topics:
