Updated: Jul 20, 2020

The Hu lab wants to congratulate our newest Ph.D. graduate, Dr. Owens, on his successful (and virtual) thesis defense! His thesis is entitled "Protein arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) is an essential regulator of the cellular response to ionizing radiation and a therapeutic target to enhance radiation therapy for prostate cancer research"


Dr. Owens joined the Hu lab in 2014 and has been awarded multiple fellowships and awards for his translational research. He has most recently published a first author paper in the Cell Press journal iScience, and is currently wrapping up another research article and a review. Thank you, Jake, for all you've done for the Hu lab research program, and congratulations again on your significant achievements during your research here at Purdue MCMP!
