A study from the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center could help predict resistance to treatments for pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancer types. In the journal Clinical Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, researchers led by UNC Lineberger’s Jen Jen Yeh, MD, and Naim Rashid, PhD, reported … Continued
In the journal Nature Communications, researchers from the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center reported they have designed a computational method for separating the different tissues in a particular sample – whether that is stroma in the case of pancreatic cancer, immune cells or cancer cells.
We are thrilled to congratulate Matthew Lipner of Yeh lab on successfully completing his PhD defense, an achievement that follows years of hard work. A successful PhD defense is one of the landmark achievements of a researcher’s career and is sure to be only the first step in Matt’s journey.
Richard Moffitt, a post-doctoral fellow in our group and now a tenure-track assistant professor at SUNY Stonybrook, led the mRNA and integrative analysis for the TCGA PAAD (pancreatic cancer) working group. The TCGA PAAD team performed integrated genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic profiling of 150 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma specimens, including samples with characteristic low neoplastic cellularity. … Continued
