In one form or another, we are all too familiar with cancer whether personally, through family or friends. Join Dr. Nathan Camp, a Scientist in Richard James’ group at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, on how he addresses biochemical mechanisms that contribute to drug resistance and diagnosis in Lymphoma and Immunological Disease. Their strategies and processes bring new insights to the IT and Engineering fields given their approach to critical thinking, design, and testing of solutions. Dr. Camp will dispel the myths of cancer, inform the audience on the science and discuss challenges which are applicable to IT and Engineering. Join us for this engaging and motivational presentation.
||Dr. Nathan Camp - Speaker
I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado and migrated to Seattle for Graduate School at UW, where I joined the laboratory of Dr. Randy Moon. During my graduate studies, I utilized animal models and biochemical techniques to characterize the function of a protein called WTX, which is often mutated in Wilms Tumor, the most common form of pediatric kidney cancer. I pursued my postdoctoral studies in the laboratory of Dr. Alejandro Wolf-Yadlin, where I utilized mass spectrometry to characterize signaling pathways and identify biomarkers of several cancer models including Melanoma and Glioblastoma. I am currently utilizing mass spectrometry and next generation sequencing to characterize drug resistance in Lymphoma and signaling mechanisms in Leukemia at Seattle Children’s Research Institute.
