GSBS Student Published in Cancer Research

Diana Romero PhD, and co-authors including Kira Young, a GSBS student at the University of Maine, have published the findings of their research in the journal “Cancer Research”. The article is entitled “Endoglin regulates cancer-stromal cell interactions in prostate tumors.” The work was conducted in the laboratory of  GSBS faculty member Calvin Vary, PhD at the Maine Medical Center Research Institute, and describes how deficiency in the TGF accessory receptor endoglin impairs the viability of cancer-associated fibroblasts, which are key drivers of angiogenesis and growth, in the tumor microenvironment.
