U Research Helps Glioblastoma Patient

Medicine

MSI PI Clark Chen (professor and head, Neurosurgery) is featured in a tv news story about a young man who is participating in a clinical trial of a treatment for glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer. The treatment uses a genetically engineered virus to kill tumor cells. The story can be found on the KSTP-TV website: Clinical Trial at U of M Brings Hope to One Cancer Patient.

Professor Chen uses MSI for genomic studies of glioblastoma to determine biomarkers that might indicate a patient’s survival with this disease.
