Amy received a T32 Postdoc Training fellowship 

February 27, 2014

 

Amy has been selected a fellow in the T32 Postdoctoral Training Program in Oncogenic Signals and Chromosome Biology. Her research will be looking at how metabolites of omega-3 fatty acids can protect against cancer. Amy aims to further explore the specific mechanism that links omega-3 fatty acid metabolism and their anticancer activity.  According to her, Omega-3 fatty acids are increasingly being used as dietary supplements, and are marketed for their many beneficial health effects. This research will help Amy and her team to further clarify the specific relationship between the dietary exposure to and metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids and their role in the regulation of certain cancers.
