Join us on Wednesday, April 28, as Dr. Tyler Allen talks about his journey as a scientist studying cells and shares the interesting secrets he’s learned along the way.   This program is presented thanks to the generous support of the Honeywell Corporation. Honeywell believes what happens tomorrow is determined by what we do today.  This event is designed for upper elementary and early middle school students but all are welcome to attend.  Watch on YouTube Additional resources: Explore more biology topics with videos from experts at iBiology https://www.ibiology.org/ Build a Cell activity from our Duke Energy Science Night Program English (pdf) Spanish (pdf) Genetic Trait Bracelet activity from our Duke Energy Science Night Program English (pdf) Spanish (pdf) Who is Tyler? Here he is in his own words: I am Tyler Allen, Ph.D, a scientist and science communicator currently living in Raleigh, NC. I earned B.S. degrees from North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Biology. Following, I earned my PhD in Biomedicine, at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine. As a PhD student, I was part of the team that discovered a novel mechanism certain cells employ to exit blood vessels, termed Angiopellosis. Additionally, my dissertation researched focused on the discovery of how circulating tumor cells utilize this method to spread (metastasize) in cancer patients, leading to what is now known as the "Cancer Exodus Hypothesis". This work has been highlighted in Forbes 30 Under 30, TheRoot, iBiology, and more. Currently, I am a postdoctoral scientist working at Duke University's Cancer Institute, in Durham, NC. My current research focuses on cancer health disparities as well as improving the understanding of how cancer cells spread in the body. I enjoy filling my free time with fitness activities, music (producing/writing), participating in science outreach/communication, and trying exciting new foods!       , , NC
