 which become led with the aid of UC’s Susan Waltz, PhD, and Cincinnati Children’s Susanne Wells, PhD.

“Advances in detection strategies and remedy have improved the analysis of breast cancer at early degrees

; but, recurrence happens in all breast cancer subtypes, and each recurrent and de novo metastasis are normally remedy resistant,” wrote the researchers.

Waltz said the collaboration with Wells’ lab began round 15 years ago, as both research groups have been studying exclusive oncogene

The researchers found that the Ron and DEK genes can regulate certain metabolites.
