Dr. Angabin Matin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Genetics at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. She received her Bachelor and Master of Science degrees from the University of Singapore. She obtained her Ph.D. in 1993 in Cancer Biology from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston, University of Texas, USA. Her current research focuses on using mouse models to dissect the complex genetic causes underlying testicular germ cell tumor development. Together with collaborators, her laboratory identified that loss of the RNA binding protein, DND1, predisposes mice to develop testicular germ cell tumors. There is growing interest to understand the biological role of DND1, a novel regulator of translation, both in normal germ cells and in germ cell tumors. Her laboratory is also involved in mapping and identifying novel testicular tumor predisposing loci and genes in mice.
