Today, we traveled into Boston to DFCI to meet with Dr. Brian Wolpin to learn about his most recent discoveries, research developments, and goals for the future. To honor and thank him, we presented him with a framed collage from the Light Boston Purple campaign.
Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and other institutions have discovered a sign of the early development of pancreatic cancer – an upsurge in certain amino acids that occurs before the disease is diagnosed and symptoms appear. The research is being published online today by the journal Nature Medicine.
