The June 29 edition of “MSK Science Spotlight” will feature chemical biologist Yael David, PhD, “Uncovering Epigenetic Events that Drive Oncogenesis.” A member of Sloan Kettering Institute, Dr. David develops and applies methods in chemical biology toward studying epigenetic regulation and its correlation with disease states. Her 2019 breakthrough found waste produced by cancer cells causes a type of damage called glycation, affecting histones, the proteins around which DNA is spooled in chromosomes.
