Breast Cancer Controlled By Genetic Master Switch

Breast Cancer Controlled By Genetic Master Switch

During breast cancer, some cancer cells will leave the tumor to invade into nearby tissues. In this new paper, Salk scientists find that the gene Sox10 is important in activating this local invasion. Left panel: Significant numbers of invasive cancer cells with Sox10 (red) in them can be found outside of the tumor (green cells, outlined). Right panel shows the invasive cells’ proximity to blood vessels (white). Credit: Credit: Salk Institute

$3.6 Million to Study Adverse Effects of Genome Editing

News

As genome editing technologies advance toward clinical therapies, they are raising hopes of a completely new way to treat disease. However, challenges need to be addressed before potential treatments can be widely used in patients. To tackle these challenges, the National Institutes of Health has launched the Somatic Cell Genome Editing program, which has awarded multiple grants including more than $3.6 million to assess the safety of genome editing in human cells and tissues.
