A Message from the Lab Chief

I hope that you will find the site both informative and interesting, with overviews of LMC scientific endeavors. As with all laboratories or departments within the Division of Intramural Research (DIR), LMC is committed to the mission of the NIEHS and its goal to improve human health. Our focus is on cancer and the research ranges from the very basic or fundamental, such as the role of chromatin and epigenetics, to investigating molecular therapeutics and translational and clinical studies of gene-environment interactions in cancer. The scientists within LMC use a broad range of approaches and techniques to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie the carcinogenic process. As you navigate this Web site you will have an opportunity to read some of this original research as well as gain an appreciation of additional activities such as the LMC Seminar Series, LMC Calendar of Events and links to other NIEHS and NIH Web sites.

Calendar of Events

For more on the LMC Journal Club and Seminar Series, see below.

Journal Clubs


The LMC journal club has been established to foster scientific discussion on the most recent science publications of interest to the laboratory. All members are invited to pick, present and lead a discussion on a recent journal article.

Notes to Participants

The 2008-2009 journal club meeting dates and locations are listed below. All meetings will be held at 12:00 noon unless notified otherwise. Anyone in the LMC is welcome to present, including fellows, biologists and principle investigators. Anyone interested in leading a discussion should contact Sophie Bolick at (919) 541-0235 or by email at (

Some Guidelines

We ask that a PDF file of the article to be discussed be emailed to the organizer for distribution at least 7 days prior to leading the meeting. We also ask if a speaker must cancel their discussion that reasonable notice be given so that the organizer can locate a substitute or rearrange the schedule.
