Recent publications from the Johns Hopkins Physical Sciences-Oncology Center

Johns Hopkins Physical Sciences-Oncology Center has had a productive quarter publishing from February to May 2013. Here are some of the most recent publications in support or the center’s core research projects, including a huge collaborative work drawing on the knowledge and research findings of the entire PS-OC network.

Screen Shot 2013-05-15 at 4.27.37 PMThat paper, A physical sciences network characterization of non-tumorigenic and metastatic cells, was the work of 95 authors from all 12 of the National Cancer Institute’s PS-OC  program centers. JHU’s PS-OC director Denis Wirtz, the Theophilus H. Smoot Professor in the Johns Hopkins Department of Chemical and Ciomolecular Engineering, is the corresponding author on this massive effort. We will be discussing the findings of that paper in a future post here on the PS-OC website. Until then, here is a link to that network paper and 13 other recent publications from the Johns Hopkins PS-OC.
