Roskamp Institute Receives Lung Cancer Research Grant

The James & Esther King Biomedical Research Program has awarded Dr. Daniel Paris of The Roskamp Institute the Small Business Technology Transfer Grant for $100,000 to conduct a research project titled: “Treatment of Lung Adenocarcinoma and Metastasis by Anti-angiogenic Fragments of Abeta.”  The Institute has previously shown that the Abeta peptite can help inhibit the growth of blood vessels near tumors.  This project aims to develop lung cancer treatment clinical trials using the peptide.
