episode 14: Epigenetics & Glioblastoma: New Approaches to Treat Brain Cancer (Lucy Stead)

In this Episode of the Epigenetics Podcast our guest Lucy Stead from the University of Leeds provides insight into her work on intratumor heterogeneity in Glioblastoma. In order to tackle this area she uses an holistic approach including Computational Genomics, In silico Modeling and Functional Genomics in order to test whether treatment-resistant subclones emerge in recurrent tumors, and characterize them in clinically relevant ways in multiple patients. And this is just a glimpse of what is discussed in this Episode.
