ICRF Project Grant Recipient

May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month

ICRF is currently supporting several projects in this area of cancer treatment. Meet one of the currently funded researchers below:

A driver mutation is a term used to describe changes in the DNA sequence of genes that cause cells to become cancerous and grow and spread in the body. Eran Meshorer, PhD, the recipient of an ICRF Project Grant at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is studying a specific driver mutation that only occurs in pediatric glioma patients. This mutation affects a protein that regulates gene expression. The experiments that he will perform should identify the specific mechanisms by which this mutation may drive malignancy, provide insights into the mechanisms underlying childhood brain tumor development, and potentially identify targets for therapeutic intervention.
