Gina DeNicola | Gina.DeNicola@moffitt.org

Assistant Member, Department of Cancer Imaging and Metabolism

Gina received her PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied the regulation of NRF2 by oncogenic signaling in the laboratory of David Tuveson. She did her postdoctoral work with Lewis Cantley, where she examined the regulation of cellular metabolism by NRF2. In May 2016 she established her own lab at Moffitt Cancer Center.

Aimee Falzone | Aimee.Falzone@moffitt.org

Research Project Specialist

Aimee has a BA from the University of South Florida and 11 years of research experience with mouse models. She has organized and assisted in many different research projects involving transgenic mouse model colony building and maintenance, imaging, tissue collection, microsurgeries, irradiation, and cell/drug delivery. She is generating and evaluating NRF2 and KEAP1 mutant GEMM lung tumor and organoid orthotopic transplant pancreatic tumor models for serine metabolism studies in vivo


 

Yun Pyo Kang | YunPyo.Kang@moffitt.org

Postdoctoral Fellow

Pyo received his PhD from Seoul National University in South Korea in the laboratory of Sung Won Kwon, where he received training in GC-MS and LC-MS based metabolomics and lipidomics technologies. Applying these high-throughput techniques, he is now exploring the regulation of cysteine metabolism during lung cancer progression. His research interests include understanding the control of metabolism by NRF2 to identify targets for cancer therapy.

Nathan Ward | Nathan.Ward@moffitt.org

Postdoctoral Fellow

Nate received his PhD from the University of South Florida in the laboratory of Dominic D'Agostino, where he evaluated metabolic inhibitors for the treatment of glioblastoma. He is now extending his interest in mitochondrial metabolism to the study of mitochondrial redox regulation in lung tumorigenesis.  

Laura Torrente Fernandez | Laura.TorrenteFernandez@moffitt.org

Postdoctoral Fellow

Laura received her PhD from the University of Dundee in Scotland in the laboratory of Laureano de la Vega, where she studied the regulation of NRF2 by the kinase HIPK2. Her project focuses on identification of therapeutics for NRF2/KEAP1 mutant lung tumors.
