AACR Virtual Journal Club:
Cancer Research With Drs. John D. Carpten and Rania Bassiouni
Moderated by: Kevin Burton, PhD
Assistant Editor, Cancer Research
Watch the recording of the AACR Journal Club session featuring Drs. John D. Carpten and Rania Bassiouni’s article recently published in Cancer Research, "Spatial transcriptomic analysis of a diverse patient cohort reveals a conserved architecture in triple-negative breast cancer." This study utilizes spatial transcriptomics technology to characterize the transcriptional substructure and heterogeneity of a diverse cohort of triple negative breast cancers. Drs. Carpten and Bassiouni describe a conserved cellular architecture and identify proportional differ.
Stay tuned for the Q&A session at the end of the recording.
About the Featured Speakers:
John D. Carpten, PhD, FAACR, serves as Professor and Chair of the Department of Translational Genomics, Director of the Institute for Translational Genomics at USC Keck School of Medicine. His expertise spans a broad range of research disciplines, including germline genetics, tumor profiling, cancer cell biology, functional genomics, and health disparities. His research aims to discover molecular alterations in cancer and to translate these findings into new approaches for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
Rania Bassiouni, PhD, received her PhD in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Central Florida, during which she studied peptide therapeutics and nanoparticle delivery systems for breast cancer treatment. Dr. Bassiouni works as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Southern California in the laboratory of Dr. John Carpten. Her work focuses on assessing breast cancer racial disparities using molecular biology approaches coupled with genomic and bioinformatic tools.
