The Cancer Center’s Research Snapshots highlight recent discoveries made by Cancer Center researchers.
Research Snapshots pair an impactful image from work in a researcher’s laboratory — often associated with a newly published manuscript — with a brief description of how the study has impacted the researcher’s field of study. Research Snapshots aim to make research discoveries more accessible for other scientists and the community as a whole.
