    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 Interest:

    Two Major Projects are Currently Underway in the Laboratory.
    A Cell Reprogramming Technique Has Been Used to Convert Heterogeneous Malignant Breast Cancer Cells into Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Using Sox2/Oct4/Nanog Proteins. Dr. Wu’s Laboratory is Clarifying these Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells for their Differentiation Potential and Oncogenic Properties, and Try to Develop a Novel Cell Converting Therapy for Malignant Breast Cancer Treatment.
    Metastasis, the Spread of Cancer Cells from the Primary Tumor To Distant Organs, Is The Most Dreadful Development Of Breast Cancer, As Well As Other Neoplastic Diseases. Although Metastasis Contributes To Over 90% Of Human Cancer Mortality, The Molecular Mechanism Of This Process Remains Largely Unknown. Dr. Wu’s Laboratory Is In The Process Of Identifying Molecular Signatures Involved In Breast Cancer Metastasis Using Integrative Genetic, Epigenetic And Proteomic Approach, As Well As Animal Models And Clinical Specimens.
