MCG’s Southeast Campus is the recipient of the AAMC STAR Award for their joint efforts with the Medical Association of Georgia to train medical students to respond to disaster situations.
To more accurately diagnose and treat multiple myeloma, scientists should look at the numbers in each arm of the Y-shaped cancer causing proteins differently, since one arm naturally has more, with and without cancer.
MCG scientists have found that high levels of a certain gene are correlated to better colorectal cancer survival rates. Next they hope to design a genetic panel that's predictive of prognosis - good or bad.
MCG scientists now know how the immune system rids the body of tumor cells, helping prevent cancer metastasis.
A synthetic peptide disrupts the destructive inflammation that occurs in nephritis, enabling the kidneys to better recover and maintain function.
Our bodies are continuously concocting specific antibodies to thwart invaders like a virus or even pollen, and scientists have new information about how the essential production gets fired up and keeps up.
