HIGHLIGHTS

A collaborative study between University of Pennsylvania and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has been published online in Cancer Cell. The authors look for more effective treatments against childhood cancers by targeting mutations of the ALK gene. Mark Lemmon and his lab worked with Yaël P. Mossé of CHOP and Ravi Radhakrishnan of the Department of Bioengineering on the project.

PENNMedicine profiled Les Dutton in its Fall 2014 issue. The article entitled "Man of Many (P)arts" highlights his science and his artwork.

Roundabout RNA: How Circular RNAs Form on the Penn Medicine News Blog site highlights the work in Jeremy Wilusz's lab and his recently published article in Genes and Development on how cells "decide" to make circular RNA.
