New Cancer Treatment Breakthrough at U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Dec 04, 2017

The National Cancer Institute awards the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign roughly $5 million in research funding each year. This funding supports a number of cancer research projects conducted at the university. One such project is a ground breaking study of nanoparticles that researchers designed to specifically bind to a protein that marks the surface of breast cancer stem cells and destroy them. These elusive and rare cells can cause cancer to come back years after the tumor has been treated.

Breast Cancer Research Breakthrough at UI Urbana-Champaign

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Oct 12, 2016

According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 American women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime, and each year over 40,000 women die from it. However, thanks to research conducted at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the number of deaths due to breast cancer may soon be significantly reduced.

UIUC Bioresearch Reveals Bugs in Bugs

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 27, 2013

Modern-day farmers are locked in a constant arms race with hungry pests, trying to develop methods of deterring bugs and plants faster than these organisms evolve to resist their attacks.  As evolution is a fairly slow process, this usually allows the farmers to come out on top, or at least enough to make a profit on their crop yields. However, there is one particularly crafty bug that seemed to evolve at a much faster rate than normal- an anomaly which bioresearchers from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign set out to explain.

Research at UIUC Uncovers a Stem Cell Parasite

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Mar 07, 2013

A microscopic worm by the name of Schistosoma mansoni has been long credited with a long lifespan and an uncanny knack for regeneration. Thanks to recent research from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the worm’s secret is out: it utilizes adult stem cells to restore and replace itself at will.
