Cold Spring Harbor researchers find immunogenic mutations in tumor genomes correlate with increased patient survival
In a study published online today in Genome Research, researchers examined the largest collection of tumor samples to date to predict patient-specific survival.
Among the research institutions NCI funds across the United States, it currently designates 68 as Cancer Centers. Largely based in research universities, these facilities are home to many of the NCI-supported scientists who conduct a wide range of intense, laboratory research into cancer’s origins and development. The Cancer Centers Program also focuses on trans-disciplinary research, including population science and clinical research. The centers’ research results are often at the forefront of studies in the cancer field.
