led a genomic study of lung cancer which has provided information that could
help scientists devise new treatments.
- Dana-Farber researchers were part of The Cancer Genome Atlas study that identified four genetically distinct types of breast cancer, each with its own biology and survival outlooks. Matthew Meyerson, MD, PhD, one of the study's co-authors, said the findings could help direct the development of better treatments, adding that it likely will result in new combination therapies rather than one "silver bullet" drug.
