Proceeds will benefit two cancer labs working on finding a cure for this deadly disease.
The University of Kansas Cancer Center and Dr. Danny Welch who has been working to cure cancer for 40 years. Dr. Danny Welch has devoted his career to finding out what causes cancer to metastasize or spread – and how the spread of cancer can be prevented or predicted. Dr. Welch and his team have discovered eight of the more than 30 known metastasis suppressor genes.
Varadan Lab at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Vinay Varadan is integrating AI and deep machine learning to help discover the best approaches to cancer treatment based on specific DNA and RNA of cancer tissue. The overarching theme of his lab is the development and application of multi-scale systems biology approaches to delineate mechanisms of disease progression and to discover novel biomarkers of therapy response in cancer.
