[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: A Sensitivity Scale for Targeting T Cells with Chimeric Antigen Receptors (CAR) and Bispecific T Cell Engagers (BiTE)
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jennifer Stone
Using a patients immune system to target cancer and maintain long-term surveillance is an attractive goal. Although T cells can respond potently to tumors, immune tolerance mechanisms often result in deletion or inactivation of those T cells expressing specific T cell receptors (TCRs) against...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: DriveRank: Discovering Patient-Specific Driver Mutations
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jack Pu Hou
One of the pressing challenges in cancer genomics is to distinguish driver mutations (i.e. mutations involved in tumorigenesis) and passenger mutations (i.e. functionally neutral mutations). Current approaches to identifying driver mutations in cancer look for recurrent events in multiple...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Elevated Estrogen Signaling Drives Tumorigenesis in a Novel Animal Model for Ovarian Epithelial Cancer
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Mary Jo Laws
We generated a mouse model where aberrant estrogen receptor alpha (Esr1) signaling in the hypothalamo-pituitary-ovarian axis leads to ovarian tumorigenesis. In this model, termed Esr1d/d, the Esr1 gene is selectively deleted in the anterior pituitary. The Esr1d/d mice form palpable ovarian tumors...

How to Engineer Human Microbiomes?
02 Mar 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mohit Verma
We are developing tools based on nanotechnology, bioengineering, and analytical chemistry to understand causal relationships between microbiomes and their hosts, and to manipulate microbiomes for desirable outcomes, e.g. to shift patients from unhealthy to healthy states. One of these tools uses...

In 2006, the South Korean Ministry of Science and Technology selected the KIST and Purdue team project from 20 international research proposals submitted to examine how to learn more about the molecular makeup of diseases.
KIST/PU Advances in detection systems for biology: Classifying signals from fluorescence and scatter
out of 5 stars
08 Dec 2011 | | Contributor(s):: J. Paul Robinson
Biology-driven advances in photonic detection systems have been dramatic in the last several years. Three specific aspects are of particular interest: molecular detection, cellular detection, and whole-organ or small-animal imaging. Each area of study requires specific probes, detectors, and...

[Illinois] BioEngineering Seminar Series: Novel Receptor-Targeting Radiolabeled Peptides for Cancer Imaging
26 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Yubin Miao
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and melanocortin-1 (MC1) receptors are attractive molecular targets for cancer imaging due to their over-expressions on cancer cells. GnRH and alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) peptides can bind the GnRH and MC1 receptors with nanomolar...
