Biography

Cincinnati Cancer Center, ASSOCIATE DIRECTORS - Peter Stambrook, PhD - Professor of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology,
University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

Peter Stambrook, PhD, is a professor in the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Department of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology. A UC faculty member since 1981, Dr. Stambrook spent 28 years in the Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy (later Cancer Biology), and served as acting chair in 1994 and then as the Francis Brunning Professor and Chair two years later after a national search. He joined the Department of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology in 2008.

Dr. Stambrook’s research specializes in DNA replication, repair and cell cycle regulation as they relate to genomic instability and cancer. His research uses multiple molecular and cellular approaches and focuses on the use of mouse "knockout" models for detecting mutagenic agents and environments, and signal transduction pathways leading to genomic instability when compromised. His work has established several ways in which mouse embryonic stem cells protect the integrity of their genomes. Dr. Stambrook also collaborates closely with clinicians at the UC Brain Tumor Center and with clinicians involved with the Head and Neck cancer program.

Dr. Stambrook holds research and training grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and has directly or indirectly secured about $50 million dollars in NIH money during his time at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Stambrook has presented at more than 60 national and international meetings and published more than 170 scientific manuscripts. He has served as the scientific director for the Israel Cancer Research Fund and on scientific review panels for the National Institutes of Health and other national agencies. In addition, he was a long-term board member for the Ohio division of the American Cancer Society.

In 2007, Dr. Stambrook had the distinction of being elected to be a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) “for his contributions to the understanding of in vivo mutagenesis and recombination between homologous chromosomes, as well exceptional service as president of the Environmental Mutagen Society.”

Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) is a nationwide charitable organization that receives its total income from private donations. ICRF was founded in 1975 by a group of American and Canadian researchers, oncologists and lay people determined to harness Israel's educational and scientific resources in the fight against cancer. Its initial purpose was to stem the "brain drain" of Israeli researchers by providing funds for postdoctoral fellowships for young Ph.D.'s. ICRF is the only U.S.-based charity solely devoted to supporting cancer research in Israel.
