Samantha Yee Publishes First Author Paper in Nature Communications
Samantha Yee, a third year Ph.D. student in the Pharmacology and Physiology discipline of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Program, has published a co-first author paper in Nature Communications. Yee is a student in Dr. April Risinger’s lab and is her first graduate student.
The title of Yee’s paper is “Elucidating target specificity of the taccalonolide covalent microtubule stabilizers employing a combinatorial chemical approach.”
Sam’s dissertation research focuses on evaluating the pharmacological and physiological effects of a novel class of microtubule stabilizers, the taccalonolides, in both in vitro and in vivo cancer models, particularly ovarian cancer.
