Toni and Chase received NJCCR fellowships

October 4, 2013

Antoni Celia-Terrassa, a postdoctoral fellow in the Kang laboratory, was awarded the NJCCR post-doctoral fellowships.  Dr. Celia-Terrassa plans to evaluate the role of secreted exosomal miRNAs in breast cancer progression and metastasis.  Recent studies have implicated secreted exosomes (microvesicles) as a new system of intercellular communication involved in physiological and pathological processes, including cancer. This exosomes have been shown to carry and transfer functional miRNAs in addition to proteins, providing a novel angle for study cancer...

Dr. Guangwen Ren awarded the DoD Breast Cancer Postdoctoral Fellowship

September 11, 2013

Dr. Guangwen Ren (Gary), a postdoctoral fellow in the Kang lab, was awarded the DoD Breast Cancer Postdoctoral Fellowship for his proposal  “Metastasis-associated Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in Organ-tropic Metastasis of Breast Cancer”.  Breast cancer is still a major health threat worldwide because of its high incidence rate and the constant risk of recurrence. Currently, although surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy have significantly improved the survival of breast cancer patients, we are still far from attaining a relapse-free final cure for all breast cancers. One...
