Understanding how tiny molecular motors called myosins use energy to fuel biological tasks like contracting muscles could lead to therapies for muscle diseases and cancers, says a team of researchers led by Penn State College of Medicine scientists. [More]
Innovative Phase II trial evaluates effectiveness of diabetes medication for lymphoma

Innovative Phase II trial evaluates effectiveness of diabetes medication for lymphoma

Cancer, it could be said, grows like a weed: rapidly, invasively, and with devastating impact on the place it infests. Also like a weed, cancer can't grow on its own — it needs nourishment, which it drains from the human body, just as weeds take nutrients in the soil away from other plants. [More]
