Just a little way down the hill from Huntsman Cancer Institute, the Zangle Lab in the Department of Chemical Engineering is working on new technologies to choose the most effective therapies for each individual patient with breast cancer. We are excited about a project that takes a new approach to measure the growth of cancer cells and predict which drugs may be most beneficial to patients with advanced metastatic breast cancer.
"letter of hope" News
Dear patients, please know this as you go through your treatment journey: the dedicated technical staff, PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows in Dr. Alana Welm's lab continue to work hard every day (and night!) to bring new hope to breast cancer through innovative research, always with patients in mind.
It is patients like you, your loved ones, and Dr. Gertz's parents who keep us motivated and excited to find ways to help in the fight against this terrible disease. We appreciate everything you do as patients—like donating samples and participating in clinical trials—and we want you to know that we are doing everything we can to help patients with breast and uterine cancer.
You might not see us during your visit to Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), but we want to let you know that we are working hard in the Varley Lab in the HCI research building next door. We conduct research that improves the treatment and care of patients like you. We are a small group of dedicated young men and women who are developing new strategies to diagnose and treat breast and ovarian cancer.
