Viral Oncolysis and Translation Control

May 13, 2021 at 12:00 PM

Location:Zoom: Register in advance for this event

The Department of Health Sciences presents:

Dr. Alain and his team at the CHEO Research Institute and the University of Ottawa study how cells use their protein synthesis machinery to respond to various conditions including viral infection, drug treatments, radiation exposure and malignant transformation. Our mechanistic approach aims to exploit mRNA translation control and signaling pathways to modulate innate immune responses to oncolytic viruses, and to augment efficacies of cancer therapeutics.

Presenter: Dr. Tommy Alain,
