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.

The breakthrough means aquarium hobbyists and marine life exhibits may soon have a source for blue tangs that doesn’t rely on wild captured fish. ..Read More ⇒Tuesday, July 19, 2016
The FIU biologist is the first scientist in the world to create a mutant mosquito — a feat he achieved in 2010 as a researcher at Rockefeller University in New York. While it sounds like a Marvel movie in the making, DeGennaro has no intention of unleashing a new type of mosquito on the world. His mutants serve a greater scientific purpose — they help him better understand what attracts mosquitoes to humans. ..Read More ⇒Monday, July 18, 2016
