Professor of Biology
BSC, McGill University,
PhD, Harvard Medical School,
Dr. Marina Holz received a BSc degree in microbiology and immunology from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and graduated with a PhD in cell biology from Harvard Medical School. At Harvard, Dr. Holz trained in the lab of John Blenis, investigating the role of the mTOR signaling pathway in protein synthesis.
Dr. Holz teaches courses in Cell and Molecular Biology, Principles of Biology for majors, and Biotechnology. She is interested in elucidating molecular mechanisms controlling cell growth and proliferation. The Holz lab employs both biochemical and cell-based techniques to dissect signaling pathways and study their role in normal and cancerous cells. Ongoing lab research projects study the role of the mTOR/S6 kinase signaling pathway in cancer and other proliferative diseases.
Research in the Holz lab is funded by awards from the National Cancer Institute, the Atol Charitable Trust, LAM Foundation, and the Wendy Will Case Cancer Fund.
Dr. Holz has published her work in leading journals, such as Cell, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Cell Cycle, Oncogene, and FEBS Letters.
