Erica Bell receives, "Annual Research Award" from ACRO!


Erica Bell, Ph.D. has received the annual Research Award and was invited to give a presentation at the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) Annual Meeting. ACRO is the second largest meeting in the field of Radiation Oncology in the USA!

In this recent research study she has been able to identify which men with prostate cancer are at highest risk for failure after a prostatectomy and which men would benefit from Radiation Therapy based upon a high-throughput micro-RNA-based profiling. "This study is the first to demonstrate that miRNA expression in tumor cells correlates with outcome after salvage radiation therapy, paving the way for potential use of miRNA biomarkers in prostate cancer treatment."" says Bell. "Our novel miRNA panel might also shed some light on the underlying mechanisms of treamtent reisstance in prostate cancer".
