UNC Lineberger’s Channing Der, PhD, and colleagues have made new findings that could help researchers identify treatments for cancers with mutations in the RAS gene family, which are among the most highly mutated genes in cancer.
The Running RAScals (aka the Der Lab at UNC Lineberger & Friends) participated in this year’s PanCAN #PurpleStride run on Saturday. This 5k run raises money to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. The team, […]
In the recently published review “Drugging Ras: Know your enemy” Bjoern Papke and Channing Der summarize the latest efforts in targeting the Ras oncogene. The review was part of the […]
Mutant RAS-driven cancers are infamously resistant to chemotherapeutics. Reporting in Cell, Grabocka and Bar-Sagi (2016) demonstrate that when subjected to stress, mutant KRAS-dependent lipid production leads to upregulated stress granule […]
Bjoern Papke, a postdoctoral research fellow in the Der lab, was recently awarded the Otto Hahn Medal from the Max Planck Society in Germany. The Otto Hahn Medal is given […]
