The chemical engineer is honored for her work designing polymers and nanomaterials with wide-ranging applications in medicine and energy.
With the new method, scientists can explore many cancer mutations whose roles are unknown, helping them develop new drugs that target those mutations.
The new diagnostic, which is based on analysis of urine samples, could also be designed to reveal whether a tumor has metastasized.
In a new study, immunostimulatory drugs slowed tumor growth without producing systemic inflammation.
If reactors are retired, polluting energy sources that fill the gap could cause more than 5,000 premature deaths, researchers estimate.
Using this approach, researchers hope to deliver therapeutic RNA molecules selectively to cancer cells or other target cells.
A new study reveals that lymph nodes near the lungs create an environment that weakens T-cell responses to tumors.
Deep-learning model takes a personalized approach to assessing each patient’s risk of lung cancer based on CT scans.
Biologists have mapped out more than 300 protein kinases and their targets, which they hope could yield new leads for cancer drugs.
