Angela L Tyner

    Email Address:
    College: Medicine Department: Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics
    Title: Professor
    Office: 2120 MBRB M/C 669 Phone: 9967964
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    We are currently investigating contributions of the intracellular tyrosine kinase PTK6 to prostate and pancreatic cancers. The long term goal is to determine if drugs that target PTK6 will be useful in the treatment of patients. We use molecular biology and biochemistry to examine PTK6 signaling in human tumor cell lines, tissues and mouse models of cancer.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 12

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Some chemistry and/or biology laboratory experience would be helpful, including an understanding of how to make solutions. Students would initially work closely with a PhD student, but will also be given the opportunity to become independent.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    I have no open paid positions, but would consider work study students and students wanting research experience for credit or as a volunteer. If you send an e-mail, please be specific. Do you have/are you eligible for work study? Are you interested in receiving course credit? How many hours per week could you work? Can you work weekends or some evenings if needed?
