Congratulations to Ian Humphreys, who started his research career as an undergraduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Jane Ishmael from 2015-17. Ian was supported by the College of Pharmacy Summer Undergraduate program in 2016 and 2017, and went on to pursue a Master’s degree in the laboratory of Dr. Tom Sharpton (Microbiology, OSU). Ian is now a Ph.D. student in Dr. Daniel Baker’s laboratory at the University of Washington and has just published his first, first author paper in Science. DOI: 10.1126/science.abm4805
Dr. Jane Ishmael (Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences) and collaborator Dr. Christian Badr (Massachusetts General Hospital) received an R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Award from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke to study ER stress in glioblastoma.
Dr. Ishmael’s research focuses on the use of new chemical entities from marine organisms and fungi as tool compounds to disrupt cell signaling and proteostasis in human cancer cells. With a special interest in glioblastoma, our goal is to identify and validate novel druggable targets for the treatment of human disease.
