- Researchers at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center have devised a strategy to directly activate a natural "death" protein, triggering the self-destruction of cells — which could lead to new possibilities for designing cancer drugs.
- The discovery of a connection between seizure resistance and a protein that modifies metabolism in the brain may result in a new treatment for epilepsy that parallels the results of the ketogenic diet, say researchers from Dana-Farber and Harvard Medical School.
- William G. Kaelin, Jr., MD, received the 2012 American Society for Clinical Investigation’s Stanley J. Korsmeyer Award in recognition of his contributions to the molecular understanding of cellular oxygen sensing and cellular adaptation to hypoxia.

- 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
