The cancer that took Senator John McCain’s life is studied at MCG

Dr. Ali Arbab, cancer biologist at the Medical College of Georgia, has been studying Glioblastoma, a rare and deadly cancer that recently  took Senator John McCain’s life. Arbab has been studying the deadly cancer for decades and tried a treatment to prevent its growth.

“The reason I started Glioblastoma is because it is a devastating tumor,” said Arbab, who is currently applying for various grants to research any additional methods that can help treat this lethal cancer.
