Carolyn Price is a Professor in the Department of Cancer Biology at the University of Cincinnati. Her research focuses on telomeres, the DNA-protein caps that protect the ends of chromosomes. Abnormalities in telomere maintenance play a key role in the development of human cancers by causing genome instability and enabling cells to become immortal. Carolyn’s lab studies telomere structure, function and mechanisms of replication. She was recently elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in recognition of her contributions to the field of telomere biology. Carolyn is co-PI on an institutional training grant that provides support for graduate students and postdocs.
