Research Snapshots

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.

If you are a Cancer Center researcher and would like to have your research considered for this feature, please contact assistant director of communications Marilee Griffin or communications specialist Leacy Burton.
