UC Davis Researchers Receive $1.5M to Study Immune Cells for Tumor Treatment

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Nov 06, 2017

White blood cells help the immune system protect the body from infections and diseases. Along with attacking infections, white blood cells also have the ability to bring other cells together to help in the fight. With these known abilities of white blood cells, life science researchers have been researching ways to amplify the abilities of these cells to target specific illnesses, such as tumors.

UC Davis Inhales $2.3M in Grants for Pulmonary Bioresearch

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Oct 18, 2016

 (Article posted 2015 and updated in 2016)

Patients with a condition known as lung nodules may soon be breathing a bit more easily, thanks to research funding granted to the University of California, Davis  and a new diagnostic technology tested in a 2016 study at the Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University. Lung nodules are usually benign, small lesions often found in CT chest scans. While only 2% of these nodules end up being cancerous, they still require examination and monitoring to ensure the safety of the patient.
