Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine have published their work about a specific type of childhood cancer in the peer-reviewed, international oncology journal, Cancers. This research involves a combination therapy that significantly slows tumor growth in models, which includes a model established from cells taken from tumors donated by Tyler Trent. This is the first published manuscript that includes Trent’s tumor model.

The Miles for Myeloma team hosted its 16th annual event in October. This year’s ride was virtual due to COVID-19, but that didn’t slow anyone down.
Two researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine spoke with the hosts of the daVinci Pursuit podcast about IU School of Medicine’s Precision Health Initiative and their breast cancer research.
In the last month, the IU Precision Health Initiative has been in the news for several different projects, such as breast cancer research, social "sameness," whether temperature checks can help stop the spread of COVID-19, an app to track whether people are wearing masks, other COVID-19 testing and mitigation, healthcare leadership during a pandemic and more.
When the IU Precision Health Consent program started in 2018, research assistants met with patients in-person to ask if they would be willing to donate an extra vial of blood as part of a regularly scheduled blood draw. That blood would be made available to researchers who are working to find treatments and cures for diseases through the Indiana Biobank. Back in March, the IU Precision Health Consent team learned they would need to connect with patients in a different way, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Many schools and businesses are requiring people to stop to get their temperature checked before they're allowed inside, a precaution aimed to slow the spread of COVID-19. A recent study conducted by Natalie Lambert, PhD, questions whether that may be giving people a false sense of security.
A study team that first opened its recruitment in southern Indiana earlier this year has seen remarkable growth in patient enrollment over the last eight months.
In the last month, the IU Precision Health Initiative has been in the news for several different projects, such as COVID-19 testing and mitigation, COVID-19 Long Hauler symptoms, the new IBRI CEO, and racial health disparities.
The Undiagnosed and Rare Disease Clinic (URDC) launched in January 2020 and has already seen success. Researchers affiliated with the clinic help patients who may have genetically-based rare diseases, when other doctors have not been able to determine a diagnosis.
