New approach outperforms existing cancer susceptibility models
Jan. 5, 2023—A new approach for conducting gene-based analyses for cancer susceptibility created at Vanderbilt outperforms existing models.
Study shows how a protein coding gene confers breast cancer susceptibility during DNA transcription
Sep. 30, 2021—Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center research is providing new insights into how genetic variants convey breast cancer susceptibility by altering the transcription factor proteins that convert DNA strands into RNA.
New markers of colorectal cancer risk
Oct. 29, 2020—Vanderbilt epidemiologists identified new markers for colorectal cancer risk and characterized a previously unidentified tumor suppressor that regulates overall tumor volume in vivo.
Possible key to COVID-19 infectivity
Sep. 7, 2020—New findings demonstrate how genetic variations in the receptor that binds SARS-CoV-2 impact virus recognition and infectivity and offer insights to COVID-19 susceptibility and treatment.
Cancer susceptibility genes
Aug. 26, 2019—Gene variants associated with cancer risk appear to contribute to carcinogenesis by regulating target genes that in turn promote the generation of mutations.
New breast cancer targets
May. 4, 2018—A special genetic analysis has revealed candidate genes associated with increased risk of breast cancer.
