Welcome to the Jackson Lab

Dr. Kimberly Jackson, Assistant ProfessorWelcome to the Jackson Group Website at Spelman College. Spelman College is a fully accredited, historically Black liberal arts institution for women, committed to the training of its students in the sciences with the goal of increasing the number of qualified minority women entering scientific careers. Our laboratory examines the use of various diet-derived as potential chemotherapeutic agents for advanced prostate cancer. Currently, there is no curative therapy available once prostate cancer has metastasized or progressed to advanced disease. It is therefore imperative to develop alternative effective therapies, such as chemotherapeutic agents, with novel mechanisms of action. Students have the opportunity to participate in a laboratory experience that extends from the molecular level to that of the whole animal.
