Dominican College of Blauvelt

Associate Professor

Biology

Dr. Bernadette Connors joined the faculty at Dominican College in January 2009. Her research focuses on better understanding proteolytic mechanisms related to defects in nucleotide excision repair, defects that have direct implications on development of certain types of cancer in higher eukaryotes. The importance of this repair mechanism is evidenced by the severe human diseases that result from mutations in its component proteins, such as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). Using the Saccharomyces cerevisae model system, Dr. Connors aims to dissect the mechanisms that regulate this repair process with regard to protein degradation following ultraviolet irradiation. To date, undergraduates working in her laboratory have identified several novel genetic interactions, and will continue to work to delineate the relationships using standard genetic and biochemical techniques.
