Emory Scientist Receives $1.6 Million for Aging and Cancer Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Jan 26, 2016

Life science research at Emory University. As people get older, their bodies become more susceptible to certain diseases. Cancer, among others, is a disease that becomes more common as people age. David S. Yu, M.D., Ph.D from Emory University was recently awarded $1.6 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the gene SIRT2 and how it can be manipulated to control the effects of aging and prevent cancer.

Emory Researchers Find Anti-Cancer Potential in Lichens and Rhubarb

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Nov 30, 2015

An orange pigment found in rhubarb and lichens has the potential to treat cancer. Cancer affects the majority of the population in one way or another, through knowing someone with cancer, being exposed to it in the media, or having it oneself. Cancer treatments and cures are some of the most well funded and highly researched areas in the life sciences. Researchers at the Winshop Cancer Institute at Emory University in Atlanta, GA recently discovered that an orange pigment, called parietin or physcion, that is found in lichens and rhubarb has potential to be used as an anti-cancer drug.
