Blood Cancer Research Moves from Lab to Clinic with UR CTSI Help

With the help of a UR CTSI Incubator Award, Wilmot Cancer Institute researcher Laura Calvi, M.D, has translated discoveries from the lab to a clinical trial that has begun to help patients with blood cancer. 

UR CTSI Pilot Study Identifies Memory “Fingerprints”

UR CTSI Pilot Study Identifies Memory “Fingerprints”

UR CTSI-supported researchers are the first to observe and quantify the differences between how people reimagine common scenarios. These unique neurological “fingerprints” could ultimately be used to understand, study and even improve the treatment of disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
