A recent multidisciplinary study from the pan-Canadian Stand Up To Cancer Canada Dream Team has shown that environments following brain injury can be a hot bed for glioblastoma and can cause uncontrolled cell replication, even in mutated cells. The research has also improved understanding of the processes that lead to such heterogeneous glioblastoma stem cell populations. The research, published recently in Nature Cancer, comes from one of Stand Up To Cancer’s signature ‘Dream Teams’, which in this case focuses on cancer stem cells and their role in glioblastoma. The interdisciplinary team consists of researchers from the University of Toronto (ON,...
