Stem Cells and Cancer

Researchers Related to Stem Cells and Cancer


Researchers at the Charles C. Gates Center for Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Biology along with the University of Colorado Cancer Center are the first in the nation to test drugs that specifically target cancer stem cells. Their research has shown that cancer stem cells are the at the root of cancer. When those stem cells are destroyed, the cancer is no longer able to regenerate.

This therapy can be used to treat tumors and blood cancers. It has already proven effective in clinical trials that are currently being conducted in collaboration by both Centers.

For more information on the Center's Stem Cells and Cancer program, please refer to the list of researchers below.
