Timothy A. Bolger
Associate Professor in BMB who recently transferred to UGA from the Dept. of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona. My lab’s research focuses on RNA biology, specifically the regulation of RNA-protein interactions during protein translation. In addition to the importance of translation regulation in cancer generally, one project in my lab also has a direct cancer focus, examining the impact of mutations identified in an RNA helicase in the brain cancer medulloblastoma. While at UArizona, I was a member of the NCI-designated Arizona Cancer Center and a trainer in the Cancer Biology graduate program there. I also previously held an American Cancer Society Research Scholar Grant and served on an ACS peer review panel for several years. I found these involvements to be helpful in advancing our research by interacting with other cancer researchers in various ways.
