Bryce Neier is a family law attorney based in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He has a bachelor’s degree in finance from Stetson University, and a juris doctor from Campbell University School of Law. Outside of work, Bryce Neier supports several charities, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
St. Jude’s is a leading force in the quest to find a cure for childhood cancers and other potentially fatal diseases. The hospital’s Cancer Genetics, Biochemistry, and Cell Biology Program focuses on defining cellular pathways that play a part in normal cell generation and apoptosis as opposed to the altered pathways found in transformed cells that do not conform to normal processes. Studies are in place to develop therapeutic protocols that target either normal cell regulation processes or altered pathways in transformed cells. The areas of focus include cell stress and metabolism, structure and function of genomes, and signaling networks.
Two seminar series help the program accomplish its goals by providing a forum for the research. The first series is a weekly event where researchers present findings in one-hour sessions followed by question and answer periods. Also weekly, the second series is more informal in nature with notebook presentations by postdoctoral fellows. This series provides a forum for suggestions for ongoing studies and future experiments.
