Pulsed Power as an Enabling Technology for Cellular Manipulation and Cancer Treatment
02 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Allen Garner
Ongoing research explores the application of pulsed power for biomedical applications, including athermal sterilization of milk, water, and juices, cancer treatment, permeabilization of cells and tissues for drug delivery, and even wound healing. This lecture will provide a general...
The Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition Its role in metastasis? Can Theory Help Cancer Biology?
19 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Herbert Levine
In order to spread from the primary tumor to distant sites, cancer cells must undergo a coordinated change in their phenotypic properties referred to as the "epithelial-to-mesenchymal" transition. We have studied the nonlinear genetic circuits that are responsible for this...

[Illinois] Integration of Quantum Dot Nanoparticles with Multimodal Microspheres for PET and Cerenkov Luminescene Imaging of Cancer
18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Joanne Li
Cerenkov luminescence (CL) imaging utilizes the photons emitted during radioactive decay when charged particles travel faster than the phase velocity of light in a dielectric medium. In this talk, I will present a novel agent to convert and increase CL emission at longer wavelengths using...

[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: T Cell Receptors For Potential Cancer Immunotherapy Applications: Single Chain T Cell Receptors Circumvent Mispairing with Endogenous TCR and Mediate T Cell Activity
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: David H. Aggen
To improve the immune response to cancer, gene therapy with tumor-specific T cell-receptors (TCRs) provides an attractive approach to effectively arm patients T cells for tumor cell destruction. A high-affinity TCR specific for an antigenic peptide-major histocompatibility complex (pepMHC) can...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Imaging Estrogen Receptors and Estrogen-Receptor Function in Breast Cancer by Positron Emission Tomography (PET): Improved Selection of Patients for Benefit from Endocrine Therapies
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: John A. Katzenellenbogen
The growth of many breast cancers is regulated by estrogens, and these cancers can be treated effectively with endocrine therapies (ET). Identifying patients who will benefit from ET, however, continues to be challenging. Measurement of estrogen receptor (ER) levels in tumor biopsy samples using...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: The Man with the Crateriform Lesion: Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph Brancheck
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common type of skin cancer in the United States and accounts for 20 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers; in addition, it is the second most common cancer overall in Caucasians. Due to an aging population and increasing sun exposure, the...
