RESCHEDULED FOR DEC. 2 – Wound Repair: Dealing with Life’s Little Traumas

Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm


Susan Parkhurst, Ph.D.
Member, Basic Sciences Division
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

In support of the Office of Personal Management guidance to strengthen efforts to protect the federal workforce and to ensure continuity of operations during the COVID-19 outbreak, the NIH Director is requesting that NIH-sponsored large meetings and symposia scheduled for March and April be held virtually, postponed, or cancelled. 


Dr. Parkhurst's lecture has been rescheduled to December 2, 2020.

Wound repair at both the single cell and multicellular (tissue) levels are critical for organism survival. The Parkhurst laboratory uses multidisciplinary approaches to delineate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of a cell’s or a tissue’s response to physical injuries, as well as a wide range of physiological and environmental stresses experienced during their normal daily functions. Current efforts are focused on the role of dynamic cortical cytoskeleton events and their regulation by Rho family GTPases.
