How are long strands of DNA packed into tiny cells?

DNA is a long, floppy molecule, and there’s more than three feet of it in every cell. Scientists are a step closer to understanding how DNA, which carries our genetic information, is squeezed into every cell in the body.

Gene Study Points Researchers toward New Pathway for Leukemia

Leukemia is one of the hardest cancers to treat, but scientists have discovered a new, targetable pathway in one of the worst subtypes of the disease.

Researchers Look to Improve Late-Stage Liver Cancer Therapy

Researchers Look to Improve Late-Stage Liver Cancer Therapy

Scientists discovered a potential therapy for late-stage liver cancer based on earlier work showing that the androgen receptor (AR), the protein that makes testosterone functional, plays a major role in regulating this type of malignancy.
