Researchers discover unique mechanism that regulates tumor growth in lung cancer

Lung cancer is the third most common type of cancer in Germany and the disease affects both men and women. However, immunotherapies are successful in only 20 percent of cases. Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now discovered a special mechanism that regulates tumor growth in lung cancer. This opens up new possibilities in the […]

Study uncovers promising new line of attack against aggressive prostate cancer

Deadliest Cancers Throttle Excess Protein Synthesis UC San Francisco researchers have discovered a promising new line of attack against lethal, treatment-resistant prostate cancer. Analysis of hundreds of human prostate tumors revealed that the most aggressive cancers depend on a built-in cellular stress response to put a brake on their own hot-wired physiology. Experiments in mice […]

New computational strategy designed for more personalized cancer treatment

Mathematicians and cancer scientists have found a way to simplify complex biomolecular data about tumors, in principle making it easier to prescribe the appropriate treatment for a specific patient. The new computational strategy transforms highly complex information into a simplified format that emphasizes patient-to-patient variation in the molecular signatures of cancer cells, the researchers say. […]

An Expansion in Research

An Expansion in Research May 14, 2018 Over the past three years, the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) has thoughtfully cultivated a blossoming research enterprise. “The research enterprise has grown significantly … as a result of investment from the school and from the university,” explained Robert Miller, PhD, senior […]
