Visiting Speaker: Prof. Rodney Minchin : Lecture, "Arylamine N-acetyltransferase role in cancer cell growth and invasion" Other events...
Prof Rod Minchin received his PhD in pharmacology at UWA before undertaking post-doctoral studies at NCI on pulmonary toxicology of anti-cancer drugs and chemical carcinogenesis, followed by fellowship and academic appointments in Australia. HIs current research interests lie in the role of arylamine N-acetyltransferases in cancer, functional significance of the brain-specific sulfotransferase SULT4A1, interaction of nanoparticles with proteins and cells and the adverse effects of nanomaterials. Currently, Prof Minchin is the Chair of Molecular Pharmacology at the University of Queensland.In this lecture, he will discuss recent insights into the role of arylamine N-acetyl transferase in cancer cell growth and invasion. (Butcher, N. J. and Minchin, R. F. Arylamine N-acetyltransferase 1 gene regulation by androgens requires a conserved heat shock element for heat shock factor-1. Carcinogenesis 31: 820-826, 2010)
