In a preclinical study, researchers led by UNC Lineberger’s Ryan Miller, MD, investigated whether the location of where the mutation occurred within the sequence of the PIK3CA gene affected the mutation’s ability to help drive cancerous growth. They also evaluated whether the location of the mutation would affect the cancer’s response to certain treatments. Read … Continued
In a pair of preclinical studies published in the journal Neuro-Oncology, researchers from UNC Lineberger and the Phoenix-based Translational Genomics Research Institute report on the genetic evolution of glioblastoma as it progresses in severity and a potential strategy to treat this often fast-growing brain cancer type. Read more about this important discovery in at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive … Continued
A new study published today in Science Translational Medicine from the team of Shawn Hingtgen, Ryan Miller, and Matt Ewend at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy and School of Medicine shows that human skin cells converted to neural stem cells deliver therapeutics that inhibit progression of the deadliest adult brain tumor, glioblastoma.
