Amro Hamdoun: Cell Self-Defense (PopTech-2010)

Cell biologist Amro Hamdoun seeks to understand the systems that cells and embryos use to protect themselves against chemical pollution. Why do some bad chemicals make it into cells, and how can we predict which ones will as we develop even more chemicals?

Biography :
Assistant Professor, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California at San Diego
Cell biologist Amro Hamdoun seeks to understand the systems that cells and embryos use to protect themselves against chemical pollution. Amro is particularly interested in how chemicals can elude these protective systems, and the implications of failure of cellular defenses for human and environmental health. He currently focuses on the function and regulation of multidrug efflux transporters in embryos. He won the National Institutes of Health K99/R00 Career Development Award and his work has appeared in PNAS and Science. His research provides a critical link between environmental chemists, ecologists and biomedical researchers working in multidisciplinary ways to reform policy and practice concerning control of environmental contaminants.
