Evette S. Radisky

Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, USA


Evette S. Radisky, Ph.D., is a faculty member of the College of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Florida, U.S. Dr. Radisky received her undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Utah in 1992. She completed her Ph.D. in chemistry in the laboratory of Professor C. Dale Poulter at the University of Utah in 1999, studying enzymes of the isoprenoid biosynthesis pathway. Dr. Radisky then completed postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Professor Daniel E. Koshland Jr. at the University of California, Berkeley, studying the structure and function of serine proteases and canonical protein protease inhibitors. Since joining Mayo Clinic in 2005, Dr. Radisky's research interests have focused on extracellular proteases that aid tumor progression. The goals of her research are to identify proteases that may offer suitable targets for molecular cancer therapy, to understand the structure and specificity of these enzymes and the mechanisms by which they contribute to cancer progression, and to develop selective protease inhibitors for use in cancer therapy.
