MSI-Supported Cancer Research Is Recognized


Research supported by MSI resources and staff has been recognized as one of the most highly cited papers published in 2013 in the journal Cancer Research. Members of the research group of Assistant Professor Scott Dehm (Masonic Cancer Center) are working with members of MSI’s RISS group to study the Androgen Receptor (AR) in prostate cancer cells. They use molecular, biochemical, cell biology, and genetic approaches. This work was also featured in a Research Spotlight in early 2014.

The paper can be found on the Cancer Research website: Li, Yingming, Siu Chu Chan, Lucas J. Brand, Tae Hyun Hwang, Kevin A.T. Silverstein, Scott M. Dehm. 2013. Androgen Receptor Splice Variants Mediate Enzalutamide Resistance in Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Cell Lines. Cancer Research 73:483, 10.1158/0008-5472.CAN-12-3630.

Co-author Dr. Kevin Silverstein is a Scientific Lead in the RISS Group.
