We are excited that Sachiko's cell and biochemical studies for IGF receptor inhibition in medulloblastoma have been accepted to Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications. Co-authors include Tohru and Laura. A key aspect of this study is the use of primary cell cultures maintained under neural stem cell conditions. In general, our lab and others are trending away from the use of traditional cell cultures for medulloblastoma, especially when sonic hedgehog signaling might be important.
Again - many congratulations, Sachiko!
