“The Fred & Pamela Buffet Cancer Center provides a unique opportunity for me as a basic scientist. I meet and collaborate with clinicians who can help translate my research into something I hope can directly benefit cancer patients. From the identification of novel chemotherapeutic targets using a model system looking at DNA replication in a chromatin context to the screening of potential drugs designed to zone in on these targets, I hope to make a broad impact from the bench to the bedside.”Kelly Trujillo PhD, assistant professor with the UNMC department of biochemistry and molecular biology
