Dawn Chandler, PhD, is a member of the Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program at the OSUCCC – James, where her work focuses on the regulation of pre-mRNA splicing and how its disruption can lead to pediatric diseases such as cancer.In one recent study, her team’s research identified for the first time a clear mechanism for regulating damage-induced oncogene MDM2 splicing. The work offers potential strategies for manipulating MDM2 expression via splicing modulation. Dr. Chandler has co-authored numerous articles in well-respected publications, including Human Molecular Genetics, Nucleic Acids Research and the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
