Research Update

Our lab is newly energized following the 2nd Hope Starts Here Cycling Challenge. This event is great for us because it refocuses our efforts, gives us a new sense of purpose and rekindles our passion to make a contribution to the fight against brain cancer.
The past year has been very productive. Our research has been published and presented at national meetings. And we were very suprised and humbled that our research was recognized nationally with the BrainLab Community Neurosurgery Research Award.
This summer,we are looking at ways to turn off two genes. One, MGMT, counteracts temzolomide chemotherapy. The other, ZBTB7, appears to be involved in the conversion of a normal cell to a cancerous one.
