Seminar: Identification of a New Player in Manganese Metabolism

Presenter: Ningning Zhao, Ph.D. | Assistant Professor | University of Arizona

The research in Dr. Zhao's lab has been focused on examining the basic cell biology of membrane proteins involved in metal metabolism and investigating the role of these proteins in human diseases, including hereditary hemochromatosis, cancer, and metal-related neurodegeneration. His long-term goal is to reveal the molecular basis of metal metabolism disorders and put this knowledge to use for improving the quality of life for patients.


Noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday
