TiMe Students Speak with Dr. Cyrus Ghajar

Paloma Pearson

TiMe students had the opportunity to interact with guest speaker Dr. Cyrus Ghajar of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Ghajar’s work forcuses on the metastatic microenvironment and the goal of his research is to understand how microenvironments within distant tissues regulate dormancy and growth of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs), and whether these niches convey chemoresistance to dormant DTCs. Students had the privilege of going to dinner with Dr. Ghajar before attending his seminar hosted by the Molecular and Integrative Physiology Department the following day.
