Researchers discover previously unknown method by which molecular manipulation occurs.
Two scientists at the University of Louisville, together with German researchers, have discovered a method unknown up to this time by which the biological process of allostery occurs, a finding that has implications for better focused therapeutic treatments with fewer side effects.
With extraordinary support from the James Graham Brown Foundation, KentuckyOne Health, Kosair Charities, the Louisville community and the University of Louisville’s President Dr. James Ramsey, the James Graham Brown Cancer Center is providing and developing through innovative research the most effective approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.
The James Graham Brown Cancer Center's Cancer Research Programs span laboratory science, clinical research, and population-based studies and are conducted by teams from multiple University of Louisville Departments and other academic institutions. We are a nationally-recognized center for the development of experimental cancer therapeutics and diagnostics and have the largest cancer trials program in the region.
Importantly, we are also training the next generation of cancer scientists and physicians and providing education about cancer prevention, with special attention to the needs of under-served populations in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
We all know someone who has lost the battle with this ubiquitous disease. We all fear it could happen to us.
The fight against cancer is one of the most daunting challenges confronting our nation today. And nowhere in the United States is that battle raging more fiercely than right here in Kentucky. We lead the nation in the number of people stricken by this disease. And we lead the nation in the number of cancer-related deaths.
