Causality and Chance in Cancer and in Other Clonal Diseases
NCI’s Center for Cancer Research (CCR) Grand Rounds Dr. Lucio Luzzatto received his M.D. from the University of Genova and then went on to do a fellowship in hematology at the University of Pavia and receive his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Ministry of Education in Rome. The leitmotiv of his research has been to understand, in depth, blood diseases with the ultimate purpose to improve their management. In the area of G6PD he did extensive studies in population and biochemical genetics, and in the early eighties cloned the G6PD gene.

Connecting Rare and Common Illnesses: Lessons Learned from Dyskeratosis Congenita, the Prototypic Telomere Biology Disorder
Director's Seminar Series Dyskeratosis congenita (DC) is a cancer-prone inherited bone marrow failure syndrome classically diagnosed by the presence of the mucocutaneous triad of nail dysplasia, abnormal skin pigmentation, and oral leukoplakia. While the classic triad is not always present, very short leukocyte telomeres are diagnostic of DC and patients with DC have germline mutations in key telomere biology genes. Telomeres, tandem nucleotide repeats and a protein complex at chromosome ends, are essential in preserving genome integrity, shorten with each cell division, and thus are a marker of cellular replicative capa...
