    Dr. Monther AlAlwan is a scientist at the Stem Cell and Tissue Re-engineering Program (SCTRP), King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, as well as an Associate professor at Alfaisal University, Riyadh Saudi Arabia. He holds M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Immunology from Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada). Dr. AlAlwan conducted a 3-years postdoctoral fellowship studying signaling in immune cells at the University of Manitoba, Canada. During his graduate studies and postdoctoral fellowship, Dr. AlAlwan made substantial contribution in the immunology field, particularly his groundbreaking discovery that highlighted the significance of the dendritic cells in the immunological synapse. After joining the SCTRP in 2007, he shifted gear to study cancer, where he identified novel mechanisms that regulate cancer metastasis and chemoresistance. Currently, he is actively involved in dissecting the molecular pathways that regulate the function of cancer stem cells and how this related to chemoresistance and metastasis. Dr. AlAlwan is an author in 20 peer-reviewed publications, has delivered several invited lectures and is a regular reviewer for various international journals.

    RESEARCH INTERESTS AND SKILLS

    My scientific interests are to understand how genetic and molecular programs can yield the complex biological behaviors. As a medical research scientist, synthetic biologist and bioengineer, I am passionate about the applications of diverse biotechnological tools to understand genomics and explore the mechanism of genomic control as well as incidence of diseases, which allow comprehensive understanding, manipulating, and engineering of sophisticated biological systems. I aim to understand cellular or organismal behaviors in both space and time thus benefit the biomedical research, translational studies and cell therapy.
    I am skilled in cell culture (primary/linage) and cellularity detections (CCK8, FACS etc); molecular cloning and detection (plasmid construction, RT-PCR, western blot etc); protein [removed]prokaryotic expression system) and purification (ionexchange and affinity chromatography); immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry detection; and animal model construction.

    Existing evidence indicates that PPI (protein-protein interaction) contributes to the tumorigenesis of endometrial carcinoma, but the mechanisms involved in it remain largely unknown. In our previous study, we found that ATF3 participating in the development of various different kinds of cancer, expressed higher in the epithelium of normal endometrial tissue than that detected in pathnological tissue, and interacted with JunB which expressing higher in the epithelium of endometrial cancer tissue than that detected in normal endometrial tissue, via yeast-two-hybrid assay. Additionally, over-expression of ATF3 led to the inhibition of cell proliferation, migration and invasion, with the down-regulation of JunB and inflammatory factor. Therefore, we put forward a hypothesis that ATF3 might inhibit the expression of inflammatory genes and the development of endometrial cancer by binding with JunB andmitigating with it. This study was designed to utilize the mRNA expression microarray analysis, CRISPR/Cas9 and orthotopic endometrial carcinoma model in nude mice combined with molecular biological techniques to explore the cell signal transductions of ATF3 and JunB in EC, demonstrate the mechanism of development of EC, and provide new therapeutic targets for it, which contributes greatly to the patients suffering from endometrial cancer.
