  • Dana-Farber scientists show a previously unsuspected gene can also influence transcription factors and potentially disable tumor cells.

  • Dana-Farber researchers have identified previously unknown mutations in a single gene in 8 percent of neuroblastomas, which account for around 15 percent of all childhood cancer deaths.

  • Scientists will be better able to trace how genetic changes give rise to diseases ranging from cancer to Huntington’s disease with a new map of protein-protein interactions within human cells produced by researchers at the Center for Cancer Systems Biology (CCSB) at Dana-Farber and associates around the world.

  • A new discovery by Jean Zhao, PhD, and colleagues may help physicians predict which tumors are likely to become resistant to a given drug. In the report, published by Nature Medicine, researchers described how they created a genetically engineered mouse model of human breast cancer in which the most frequently occurring breast cancer oncogene, PIK3CA, could be turned on and off.
