Zoe Walters
University Of Southampton, England

Title:Rational Combinations with Epigenetic Inhibitors for the Treatment of Soft Tissue Sarcomas

Biography :

Dr. Zoe Walters is a Lecturer in Translational Epigenomics within the Faculty of Medicine, and is Programme Lead for the MSc in Genomic Medicine at the University of Southampton. ZoŽ gained a BSc in Molecular Genetics at the ........ University of Sussex where she also obtained her PhD working on signal transduction mechanisms in the formation of the wing and leg structures in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. From there she went to Cardiff University where she undertook research using the model organism Xenopus to uncover novel genes involved in Wnt signalling that might provide insights into tumorigenesis. There she discovered a solute carrier involved in embryonic patterning in the frog that is linked to Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) signalling. In 2008, ZoŽ joined Prof. Janet Shipley's team at the Institute of Cancer Research where she investigated novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of RMS. ZoŽ's research team at Southampton focuses on aberrant epigenetic mechanisms that contribute to the pathogenesis of diseases including cancer and developmental disorders, with a view to identifying novel treatments for these diseases Read more
