Jared Rutter, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Biochemistry
Jared Rutter, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Utah and a member of the Nuclear Control of Cell Growth and Differentiation Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Rutter studies how cells sense and detect energy needs for growth. Understanding the energy-sensing pathways in cells is important in cancer research because these pathways are often overactive in cancer and a good target for new chemotherapy treatments.
Rutter received a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University, Utah, and a PhD from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.
