Scientifically Speaking: “Cancer, Aging and the Future of Oncology” – Hosted by Jackson Laboratory

November 8, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for our newest virtual event which highlights JAX’s distinctive combination of research, education and resources and our role in empowering the biomedical community to improve the future of human health. Our series launches with two up-and-coming JAX scientists in a “fireside chat” moderated by Professor Jeffrey Chuang, Ph.D.

Brittany Angarola, Ph.D., and Aaron Taylor, Ph.D., are postdoctoral associates pursuing cancer research at JAX. Angarola studies the impact of age-related changes on breast cancer development and progression. Taylor is collecting genomic and epigenomic data from pediatric brain and bone cancers that he hopes will help discover better therapeutic targets for children suffering from cancer.
