Teaching by Example for Nearly Five Decades

As a young woman in the 1950s, California State University, Bakersfield professor Dr. Jackie Kegley was told that women shouldn’t pursue a college education. That experience continues to inspire her commitment to first-generation students.

The Secret to Combating Pancreatic Cancer May Lie in Suppression of a Common Protein

GRP78_3.png

Research from the Keck School of Medicine of USC indicates that in mice with a KRAS mutation, which is present in 90 percent of pancreatic cancer patients, expressing only half the amount of the glucose-regulated protein GRP78 is enough to halt the earliest stage of pancreatic cancer development. This results in delayed tumor development and prolonged survival.

Researchers Use Social Media to Identify Biggest Concerns Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients Have with Treatments

Cedars-Sinai researchers analyzed thousands of social media posts to determine the biggest concerns patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have about their prescribed treatments. The No. 1 patient concern: Risks of side effects from biologic medications even when risks are remote.

Injured Bones Reconstructed by Gene and Stem Cell Therapies

A Cedars-Sinai-led team of investigators has successfully repaired severe limb fractures in laboratory animals with an innovative technique that cues bone to regrow its own tissue. If found to be safe and effective in humans, the pioneering method of combining ultrasound, stem cell and gene therapies could eventually replace grafting as a way to mend severely broken bones.
