Cancer discovery could revive failed treatments for solid tumors

New research from the UVA Cancer Center could rescue once-promising immunotherapies for treating solid cancer tumors, such as ovarian, colon and triple-negative breast cancer, that ultimately failed in human clinical trials. The research from UVA’s Jogender Tushir-Singh explains why antibody approaches effectively killed cancer tumors in lab tests, but proved […]

Protein structural insights chart the way to improved treatments for heart disease

A team including Wei Liu, assistant professor in ASU’s School of Molecular Sciences (SMS) and the Biodesign Institute’s Center for Applied Structural Discovery, has published a paper today in Molecular Cell that offers promising details for improved therapeutic treatments for cardiac disease. Cardiac disease is the number one killer of […]
