Midsummer Nights' Science 2013:

Exploring the genome’s "dark matter: What the frontiers of genomic research are revealing about cancer

Levi Garraway, Ph.D.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, accounting for more than 9,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Finding its biological underpinnings – the triggers that allow cancer cells to divide indefinitely – is essential to understanding the disease and conceiving of potential treatments. Levi Garraway will discuss his recent work on the genes involved in melanoma growth, and will talk more generally about how genomic research is helping to reveal some of cancer’s long-held secrets.
