New squamous cell carcinoma drug target discovered

Vasioukhin and colleagues find alpha-catenin protein acts as a tumor suppressor, cell growth control mechanism revealed

May 30, 2011 | By Kristen Woodward

Hutchinson Center researchers have discovered a new drug target for squamous cell carcinoma, the second most common form of skin cancer. Scientists in the Human Biology Division laboratory of Dr. Valeri Vasioukhin found a protein called alpha-catenin acts as a tumor suppressor and they also have unlocked the mechanism by which this protein controls cell proliferation.

Brain cell migration may offer clues to cancer metatasis

Cooper, Jossin find surprising new role for N-cadherin; finding could shed light on how normal and cancerous cells migrate within the body

April 25, 2011 | By Kristen Woodward

By shedding new light on how cells migrate in the developing brain, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientists may have found a new mechanism by which other types of cells, including cancer cells, travel within the body. The findings by the Basic Sciences Division's Dr. Jonathan Cooper and Dr. Yves Jossin, a research fellow in the Cooper Lab—published online April 24 in Nature Neuroscience—could lead to a better understanding of neurological development and, possibly, cancer metastasis.
