Public radio program features chemistry faculty member discussing research into easing side effects of harsh chemotherapy drug
Radford University Associate Professor of Chemistry Kim Lane is appearing this week on the With Good Reason public radio program.
In a recorded interview, Lane speaks about how she and a team of student researchers at the university are exploring ways to ease the side effects of a potent chemotherapy drug used against colon cancer.
At Radford University, Lane’s research delves into the “determination and analysis of protein structures, including prenyltransferase and bacterial b-glucuronidase, whose substrates and products have been implicated in the occurrence and/or treatment of human cancers.”
The interview with Lane is scheduled to be broadcast through Aug. 24 on more than 60 With Good Reason stations across the United States. Listeners in the New River Valley can hear the show at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 21 on Public Radio WVRU 89.9.
