Investigators from Dartmouth’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center published new findings about how the complex parts of the blue light known as the Cherenkov Effect can be measured and used in dosimetry to make radiation therapies safer and more effective.
Using the technique known as “Gene Rank”, Dartmouth investigator Eugene Demidenko, PhD, captured and described a new characterization of gene connectivity in “Microarray Enriched Gene Rank,” published in BioData Mining. The effective computer algorithm can be used to compare tissues across or within organisms at great speed with a simple laptop computer.
Inserting a specific strain of bacteria into the microenvironment of aggressive ovarian cancertransforms the behavior of tumor cells from suppression to immunostimulation, researchers at Norris Cotton Cancer Center and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth have found.
