Rosalind Kornfeld Lecture for Distinguished Women in Science: “Cancer Immune Therapy Targeting the Tumor Glycocalyx”

  • Friday, November 2, 2018 • 3:00 pm
  • Holden Auditorium, Farrell Learning and Teaching Center, 1st Floor, 520 S. Euclid Avenue

Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Chemical & Systems Biology and Radiology (by courtesy) at Stanford University, and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Prof. Bertozzi’s research interests span the disciplines of chemistry and biology with an emphasis on studies of cell surface glycosylation pertinent to disease states. Her lab focuses on profiling changes in cell surface glycosylation associated with cancer, inflammation and bacterial infection, and exploiting this information for development of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, most recently in the area of immuno-oncology.

This presentation will focus on Bertozzi’s recent work targeting immune suppressive Siglec receptors and their sialylated glycan ligands, which are abundant within the cancer glycocalyx.
