- Genetic specialists at Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center (DF/CHCC) are recommending that children being treated for sarcoma should be offered genetic counseling for Li-Fraumeni syndrome, a rare condition that greatly raises a person’s risk of developing additional cancers

- Study finds delay of more than six weeks between surgery and radiation
makes local recurrence more likely, and could have implications for
younger women's risk of recurrence.
- Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children's Hospital Boston researchers have identified a protein that could be a powerful treatment target for sickle cell anemia, a significant global health problem, one that affects between 75,000 and 100,000 people in the United States alone.
- Research led by Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center reports the discovery of a new genetic target for potential therapy of sickle cell disease.

- Scientists from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and their colleagues have found a genetic marker that predicts which aggressive "triple negative" breast cancers and certain ovarian cancers will likely respond to platinum-based chemotherapies.

- Dr. Gimelbrant is mapping gene activation to better understand the
mechanisms essential for gene silencing. His findings could lead to the
design of highly customized cancer treatments.

- Scientists at Dana-Farber demonstrate that it’s possible, early in a tumor’s growth, to identify cancer genes that endow the tumor with the ability to metastasize. This is an important step toward developing prognostic tests for identifying early-stage tumors that are likely to spread and can be treated accordingly.

- Dana-Farber researchers show first large-scale map of protein networks in a plant, addressing longstanding questions about evolution and illuminating disease processes in plants, in turn broadening the understanding of the basic functioning of human cells.
- In an elegant, multiple-gene knockout experiment, a team of Boston
scientists has discovered that a trio of molecules, called FoxOs, are
fundamentally critical in preventing some cancers, maintaining blood
vessel stability, and in keeping blood-forming stem cells healthy.
