Researchers identify a hormone from fat cells that reprogram the liver microenvironment and restrain tumor growth in mice
A hormone secreted by fat cells can restrain the growth of liver tumors in mice, according to a new study from the LSI. The findings offer a proof-of-concept for developing therapies against the most common form of liver cancer.
LSI Assistant Professor Wenjing Wang discusses the critical importance of supporting graduate students in the lab, and how philanthropic programs at the LSI are helping her students, and her entire research program, to thrive.
