Recruitment of First-Time, Tenure-Track Faculty Members
Children's Research Institute at UT Southwestern
November 29, 2017
Cancer onset and progression can be affected by diet, but knowing which nutrients are most important and how they affect cancer cells is less completely understood. Now a cancer biologist at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is examining the differences in metabolism between cancer cells and normal ones in order to figure out how to starve cancer cells of the nutritional resources they need in order to survive.
Michalis Agathocleous was a postdoctoral researcher at UT Southwestern, and a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT in 2017 enabled him to stay on as a faculty member to continue his research at the Children’s Research Institute.
