|Toxicology Lecture to feature Kendall Wallace, PhD, DABT, FATS|
Kendall B. Wallace, Ph.D., DABT, FATS, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Minnesota, will present the 2006 Sitlington Lecture in Toxicology at the Center for Veterinary Health Sciences in Stillwater.
Wallace’s presentation entitled "Mitochondrial Cardiomyopathy and the Compensated Metabolic State" will be on Thursday November 30, at 3:30 p.m. in the McElroy Hall auditorium located within the Veterinary Center complex. Doxorubicin (Adriamycin®) is a widely used chemotherapeutic agent, the clinical utility of which is severely restricted by the development of an irreversible cardiomyopathy. Dr. Wallace’s presentation will focus on doxorubicin-induced mitochondrial dysfunction as a cardiotoxic mechanism, and changes in both gene expression and metabolomics that underlie adaptive changes in cardiac function following doxorubicin exposure.
The Sitlington Lecture in Toxicology is open to the public and sponsored by Carey Pope, Ph.D., Professor and Head of the Veterinary Center’s Physiological Sciences Department. For additional information, please call (405) 744-6257.
