Funding brain cancer research is important!
Check out the two Research Studentships we funded for the summers of 2016-2017! Matthew Dankner will be using patient-derived xenograft models to identify mediators of brain metastasis in diverse cancers and Karl Narvacan will be evaluating nCounter technology in copy number variation analysis for the integrated classification and predictive prognosis of diffuse gliomas.
We wish Matthew and Karl all the best in their academic careers!
