While mutations in BRCA genes are well known to increase breast cancer risk, researchers from the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center have uncovered a different series of genes they believe might be contributing to breast cancer through a lesser-known mechanism.
The annual Phillip and Ruth Hettleman Prizes for Artistic and Scholarly Achievement have been awarded to four associate professors who exemplify groundbreaking and innovative research along with future career promise.
Greg G. Wang, PhD, and UNC researchers recently identified a gene termed PHF19 to be critically involved in the development and progression of multiple myeloma, and also provided proof-of-principle evidence supporting pharmacological targeting of this pathway for therapeutics of this common hematological cancer.
This paper describes a ground-breaking multi-omics technology to discover drivers of proliferative and invasive breast tumors.
