The D’Angiolella lab investigates the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in cancer cell survival and response to ionizing radiation. My project focuses on the role of an E3 ubiquitin ligase in the RAS oncogenic pathway. This is done with the hopes of exploiting this role to develop novel therapeutic targets for RAS mutant cancers, which constitute almost a third of all cancers. 


Shahd graduated with a BSc in Chemistry from the American University in Cairo in 2017, obtained an M.Phil in Chemistry from the University of Cambridge in 2018, and proceeded to begin a DPhil in Oncology in the D’Angiolella lab at the University of Oxford.
