Jody Rosenblatt, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Oncological Sciences
Jody Rosenblatt, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Oncological Sciences at the University of Utah School of Medicine, an investigator at Huntsman Cancer Institute, and a member of the Cell Response and Regulation Program.
The Rosenblatt Lab at Huntsman Cancer Institute studies cell death and division in epithelia. Cell turnover is extensive throughout the body, particularly in epithelia. In order to maintain constant cell numbers, the number of cells that die must match those that divide. Not surprisingly, mutations that either enhance the rate of cell division or reduce the rate of cell death can lead to cancer. The Rosenblatt Lab investigates the signaling and mechanisms of these processes and the fate of cells when these processes are mis-regulated.
Rosenblatt received her BA with honors from the University of California, Berkeley, and her PhD from the University of California, San Francisco. She then completed postdoctoral fellowships at the University College London. Rosenblatt presents and publishes widely and has received numerous research fellowships and grants in the United States and the United Kingdom.
