(Posted: 04/07/2014) - Researchers studying a rare, always fatal brain tumor in children have found several molecular alterations that drive the cancer.

St. Jude study of gene sequencing discovers mutations tied to deadly brain tumors in infants
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/07/2014) - St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital-Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project offers new leads to improved outcomes for children with high-grade glioma brain tumors, particularly youngest patients.

NCI intramural research highlighted at 2014 AACR meeting
NCI Perspective Article
(Posted: 04/07/2014) - This year’s American Association for Cancer Research meeting featured plenary talks by two NCI scientists, Steven Rosenberg, M.D., and Louis Staudt, M.D., Ph.D., that highlighted the challenges in developing varied and potentially synergistic treatments for aggressive forms of cancer. Each researcher has been focusing primarily on a particularly difficult to treat cancer (melanoma and lymphoma, respectively) for many decades, and their presentations highlight the diligence and tenacity needed to come to a better understanding of the cancer process and to find effective agents to target the diseases they study.

Washington U researchers identify a possible culprit in spread of colon cancer
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 04/03/2014) - Growing in three dimensional culture, colon cancer cells formed either smooth hollow structures (top) or spiky clumps (bottom). PLAC8 was highly expressed in the spiky clumps, which were shown to form rapidly spreading tumors in mice.
