Sachiko and Tohru recently attended the AACR special conference on the Genetics and Biology of Brain Tumors in San Diego. This conference had a high content of adult cancer research, especially glioblastoma multiforme, but also had notable pediatric brain tumor representation including that of our collaborator, Dr. Richard Gilbertson of St Jude. At the meeting Sachiko presented her work on the ubiquitin-proteasome system in medulloblastoma, and Tohru presented his work on the cell of origin of pituitary tumors.
