Delve into the fascinating world of cancer research with Dr. Edward V. Prochownik

Today’s seminar at our institute explored the intricate mechanisms underlying cancers driven by the c-Myc oncoprotein. Dr. Edward V. Prochownik presents his work on “The Myc Oncoprotein Transcription Factor Network: Multiple Roles in Normal and Premature Aging”

Dr. Edward is a hematologist in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital. He received his medical degree from University of Chicago Division of the Biological Sciences The Pritzker School of Medicine and has been in practice for more than 20 years. Dr. Edward V. Prochownik accepts United Healthcare

The Prochownik lab is utilizing over-expression and knockout models to determine how genes that cooperate with or are affected by Myc such as ChREBP and pyruvate dehydrogenase specifically contribute to the metabolic and molecular landscapes of these tumors.

A captivating journey through the forefront of cancer biology!
