Congratulations to Jinu, whose first author paper on drug resistance to Igf1 Receptor inhibitors was accepted today to the journal, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics. This study is of relevance to a Children's Oncology Group study run by OHSU co-author Dr. Suman Malempati, who is investigating Igf1 Receptor inhibitors in metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma. Other key contributors included Suresh Prajapati, Koichi Nishijo, Beverly Schaffer, Eri Taniguchi, Aoife Kilcoyne, Amanda McCleish, Laura Nelon and Frank Giles (UTHSCSA), Argiris Efstratiadis (Academy of Athens), Robin D. LeGallo (University of Virginia), Brent M. Nowak (UTSA) and Brian Rubin (Cleveland Clinic). Different aspects of this study were funded by the Scott Carter Foundation, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foudnation, Hyundai Hope on Wheels Program and the National Cancer Institute.
Nicely done, Jinu!
