EOH Seminar: "Chromatin deregulation by environmental exposure" by Chunyuan Jin, MD, PhD

Graduate School of Public Health | Department of Environmental and Occupational Health presents:

Chromatin deregulation by environmental exposure

by Chunyuan Jin, MD, PhD
Associate Professor
Environmental Medicine
New York University Grossman School of Medicine

Friday, March 5, 2021
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
via Zoom

Research Highlight: Dr. Jin’s research focuses on the mechanisms underlying the effects of environmental exposures on the chromatin structures and genome integrity. In particular, Dr. Jin investigates the effects of aldehydes and heavy metals on carcinogenesis.   His group has been recently demonstrated that arsenic can induce polyadenylation of histone H3 variants, which results in chromosome instability (iScience. 2020;23(9):101518). The oncogenic role of H3 variants (especially H3.3) has also been studied. These findings will provide new insights into designing new therapeutic and preventive targets for arsenic-induced cancers.

Learning from our students/staff/faculty, nationally and internationally known scientists, practitioners and policymakers on issues of environmental, occupational and public health

The EOH Seminar Series takes place every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 1:00pm – 2:00p.m (via Zoom). Through presentations and discussions, we aim to highlight the latest cutting-edge environmental health science research, promote public health, and enhance multidisciplinary collaborations between medical, public health specialists and community.  Moreover, we would like to highlight research from young investigators and our EOH students and fellows. In additional to topics of environmental and occupational health exposures, we will have presentations about social justice and diversity, women and children health, neurological disorders, cell metabolism and stem cells, metal toxicity, respiratory biology, redox biology, microbiology and host defense, and environmental epigenetics. Please stay-tuned!  

If you would like to attend a seminar or receive e-mail notices about future EOH seminar series, please contact Adam Orbell (aorbell@pitt.edu). If you have other questions about our EOH seminar series, please contact Winnie Tang (wat23@pitt.edu) and Bruce Pitt (brucep@pitt.edu).  We look forward to your participation
