Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center, working with colleagues at The University of Arizona and Arizona State University, have developed a new combination agent approach targeting tumor receptors based on their variety of cell surface proteins. The approach, which was tested in pancreatic cancers and melanoma modeled in tumor-bearing mice, opens the possibility of developing new multivalent agents that can target unique and multiple receptor combinations in tumor cells. This is a significant improvement over current single-target strategies.

Tumor Cells Develop Predictable Characteristics that are not Random, Say Moffitt Cancer Center Researchers
Tumors are composed of many subpopulations of cells. A general consensus among scientists is that these subpopulations are due to random mutations. However, Moffitt Cancer Center researchers found that these assumptions may be incorrect. In a new article published in the journal Cancer Research, they report that certain subpopulations can be predicted and do not develop randomly as previously thought. ..Read More ⇒Tuesday, June 21, 2016

This year’s Discovery Channel Shark Week kicks off with science from University of Miami’s (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science shark researcher Neil Hammerschlag and collaborators in the Bahamas. The show, called “Tiger Beach,” will follow Hammerschlag and colleagues as they study tiger sharks to better understand the life of these massive predators. The show airs at 8 p.m. on Sunday, June 26. ..Read More ⇒Wednesday, June 15, 2016
Four months after stunning the world with the announcement that they had detected gravitational waves from a collision of two black holes and confirmed a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity, scientists say they’ve done it again. ..Read More ⇒
