Taking place the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 12 - 1 p.m. EST on Zoom


"Genetic and Molecular Determinants Associated with Dropout from and Adherence to Lifestyle Interventions"

Katherine Collins, PhD

First-year Postdoctoral Fellow, Genomic Medicine Research Trainee (T32)
Duke Molecular Physiology Institute
Duke University School of Medicine

"AR-pathway-inhibitor resistant prostate cancer: A Systems Biology Approach"

Nathan Hawkey, MD

First-year Postdoctoral Fellow, Genomic Medicine Research Trainee (T32)
Fellow, Hematology-Oncology
Duke University School of Medicine

Thursday, May 12, 2022
12 p.m. – 1 p.m.

Katherine A. Collins, PhD, is a postdoctoral fellow at the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute, Duke University School of Medicine. She completed both her masters of science (M.S.) and doctorate degrees in exercise physiology at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research focuses on 1) identifying predictors of dropout and adherence to lifestyle interventions; 2) characterizing phenotypic and genotypic profiles of individuals at-risk for dropout and poor adherence; and 3) utilizing personalized medicine approaches to target these at-risk individuals.

Nathan Hawkey, MD, was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. He majored in chemistry at University of Colorado, Boulder and graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine in 2016. Hawkey went on to complete his residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts in 2019. He started hematology and oncology fellowship at Duke in 2019 and will graduate in July 2022. Hawkey’s current research interests are utilizing systems biology approaches to modeling and finding therapeutic vulnerabilities in androgen resistant prostate cancer.
