About This Project

Cancer treatment is a challenging, complex and exhausting process for the patient, their family and medical team. Chemotherapy kills both cancer and normal cells, and may not prevent remaining cancer cells from spreading. Our research team believes that by turning up a gene HEXIM1, it has a way to stop most cancers from spreading. This could make cancer treatment more palatable and effective and ultimately make cancer a more survivable disease.
