Colloquium: Humphries on the mechanics of pancreatic cancer

Dr. Humphries

This week the Spring 2022 Biology Colloquium hosts Martin Humphries, professor of Biochemistry at the University of Manchester, UK. Dr. Humphries studies the molecular mechanisms by which cells interact in the larger structure of tissues — particularly cancer cells surrounded by healthy host tissue. His seminar will be titled, “Mechanisms of mechanotransduction in pancreatic cancer”

Colloquium series seminars are held Fridays at 2pm in Chaparral Hall room 5125. This week, Dr. Humphries will be available to meet with students during a “Meet the Speaker” mixer after the seminar in Chaparral Hall room 5201, where light refreshments will be served.
