A major challenge in developing novel and more effective treatments for breast cancer and other solid tumors is identifying the right targets to thwart the development of malignant tumors.
Dr. Debananda Pati of Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Dr. Yizhi Jane Tao, assistant professor of biochemistry and cell biology at Rice, received $178,241 to study ideal targets for a proposed therapy to attack breast cancer and other solid tumors.
They are confident that, by the end of this project, they will have sufficient preliminary data to take the next steps in developing and testing an effective drug.
