The Medical Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Alumni Award Recipient Presentation featured Junjie Chen, Ph.D.'93, Professor and Chair of the department of Experimental Radiation Oncology, Division of Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

 

Dr. Junjie Chen is interested in determining the molecular mechanisms underlying genomic instability and tumorigenesis. He has been working in the field of DNA damage response and cancer biology especially focusing on BRCA1 and BRCA2 since he joined Mayo Clinic as an independent group leader in 1999. His research team has discovered many new components involved in DNA damage repair. His lab conducts mass spectrometry-based proteomics studies and uses CRISPR screens to investigate gene-gene and gene-drug interactions involved in DNA damage response and cancer therapy.
