Investigating a treatment-resistant breast cancer
The National Cancer Institute has awarded a research team at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute $9.2 million over five years to serve as a Research Center in the NCI's Cancer Systems Biology Consortium. OHSU investigators will focus on improving therapeutic strategies for treatment-resistant triple negative breast cancer. The goal is to identify the mechanisms by which these cancers evolve and adapt to become resistant to treatment, and to develop new strategies to counter these mechanisms.

Alzheimer's and the aging brainDoris Kretzschmar, Ph.D., uses the fruit fly Drosophila to investigate how changes in genetic factors lead to Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. She also studies how environmental changes, like disruptions in circadian rhythms, affect the progression and severity of these diseases. This video introduces Dr. Kretzschmar's research into the aging brain in fruit flies.
