Recently ABC2 was generous enough to offer to post a blurb about a study I’m working on on their Facebook page.  You might have seen it – I am Ashley Varner, a social work doctoral study studying the lived experience of family members living with and caring for someone with a primary malignant brain tumor.

In partnership with UCSF and MD Anderson, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure brought together researchers from leading medical centers and biotech companies to strategize new therapeutic paths to treat Low Grade Gliomas.  The January research workshop, which was held in San Francisco, focused on understanding the underlying biology of brain tumors such as oligodendrogliomas and astrocytomas.

Brain cancer research funded by Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure is featured in Scientific American today.

The research involves a multi-center clinical study using new exosomal diagnostic tests developed by New York City-based Exosome Diagnostics to identify a genetic mutation found exclusively in glioma, the most common form of brain cancer.
