On March 22, 2021, Dr. Suhui Yang, Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, virtually presented in Charles Drew University’s Cancer Journal Club. The two-hour event/presentation, titled “YUM70 as a Novel ER Stress Inducer”, featured two research papers along with an overview of her authored research and its significance. Dr. Yang’s and her colleagues’ study identifies a novel ER stress inducer that binds GRP78 and inhibits pancreatic cancer cell growth in vitro and in vivo, demonstrating its potential as a therapeutic agent for pancreatic cancer. In addition, Dr. Yang’s other research projects have been selected as poster presentations for two upcoming conferences. CDU’s Cancer Journal Club is held weekly on behalf of CDU’s Division of Cancer Research and Training, Cancer Center and AXIS Center. AUHS proudly supports and encourages their faculty members to share their knowledge and research with the public community to raise awareness of health issues and outcomes.
