Guillermina 'Gigi' Lozano, Ph.D., awarded AACR Charlotte Friend Memorial Lectureship
Date:4/8/2013

HOUSTON Guillermina "Gigi" Lozano, Ph.D., chair and professor in the Department of Genetics at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, is the recipient of the 16th annual Women in Cancer Research Charlotte Friend Memorial Lectureship awarded by The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), recognizing her contributions to the field of cancer research and the advancement of women in science.

A pioneer in understanding the p53 tumor suppressor pathway, Lozano will deliver her award lecture, "Activities of Mutant p53 Proteins in Cancer," today as part of the 2013 AACR Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., April 6 10. Her award is one of six for MD Anderson faculty this year.

Lozano's lab at MD Anderson was the first to establish p53 as a transcriptional activator of other genes. Their landmark study published in Science in 1989 identified a p53 transactivation domain and showed that p53 mutants failed to activate transcription, paving the way for important discoveries regarding its mechanism in the development of numerous cancers including breast, colon, lung and ovarian cancer.

Her subsequent research provided the necessary mouse models to validate the critical gatekeeper role the protein Mdm2 plays in regulating p53 activity, as well as establishing the importance of dual functions of p53 in preventing tumor development where it not only forces cell death, but also halts a defective cell's ability to reproduce and helps maintain genomic stability. Most recently she has explored how mutant p53 proteins contribute to cancer development and treatment outcomes.

"It is an incredible honor to be in the same company as Dr. Friend, a researcher who has inspired future generations of female scientists looking to excel in their research," said Lozano. "What drives me is the hope that someday my research will translate into novel therapies targeting p53, ultimately impacting clinical care and saving the lives of
