This week the Spring 2022 Biology Colloquium hosts Kristen Dias, a genomicist and bioinformatician at Truebinding. Dr. Dias, a CSUN Biology alumnus, now works on applications of galectin-3, or Gal3, a lectin with molecular roles in diseases as varied as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. His seminar, given by invitation with the URISE and Bridges-to-PhD programs, will be titled, “A Therapeutic Approach in Targeting Galectin-3”.

Colloquium series seminars are held Fridays at 2pm in Chaparral Hall room 5125. This week, Dr. Dias 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.
