Telomeres Might Predict Lung Cancer Recurrence
Telomeres are sections of DNA that tell an interesting story about lifespan. Shorter telomeres usually suggest a shorter life -- but new research by a Wilmot lung cancer expert shows that longer telomeres might be a promising biomarker for a recurrence of early stage lung cancer.
Matt Kottmann, M.D., assistant professor in the division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, received a highly competitive Parker B. Francis Fellowship grant to study lung scarring. Kottmann is one of just 11 lung researchers in the U.S. to receive the award.
