Dear colleagues and friends,
Welcome to the May issue of SBP Discoveries. This month we are highlighting research advances in targeting cancer and treating diabetes, and revealing insights into the signals that regulate the survival
of T cells—a type of
white blood cell that is central to immunity.
SBP also held its ninth annual graduate student retreat this month—an opportunity for 25 students in our Ph.D. program to present their research and mingle with mentors, faculty and fellow students.
We are very much looking forward to hosting “SBP Insights: Alzheimer’s Disease” on June 5, and our Cancer Center Open House on June 14. Please consider joining us to learn more about how research can lead to better diagnostics, treatments and potential cures for these challenging diseases.
Finally, I wish to thank Congresswoman Susan Davis for visiting our campus. It was an honor to host a government representative who has long supported funding biomedical research that can improve the lives of patients in need of better therapies.
We hope you enjoy this issue.
Kristiina Vuori, M.D., Ph.D.
