50 ways to repair an ovary? Study suggests multiple pathways can create stem-like ovarian cells
August 17, 2021 - Approximately every 28 days, hundreds of cells die and disintegrate on the ovary’s surface as an egg breaks through and begins its journey. Ovaries have become masters at repairing this damage, but exactly how they do this remains a mystery.
Researchers work towards the development of targeted therapies for ovarian cancer
August 9, 2021 - Researchers have made great strides in developing targeted therapies for many cancers, but the treatment options for ovarian cancer remain limited. Motivated by a desire to help these patients, Dr. Johanne Weberpals and her colleagues conducted a det
