Pre-Clinical Innovation

Craig Thomas, Ph.D., views and discusses the results of a drug screen with scientists Michele Ceribelli, Ph.D., and Scott Hoyt, Ph.D.
Potential New Drug Combinations for Childhood Cancers

To help address challenges in treating children with cancer, a team of NCATS researchers is rethinking treatment approaches for several difficult-to-treat childhood cancers.

A family of proteins, including the cancer target protein NSD2, surround a cell’s nucleosome.
New Approach to Identify Potential Cancer Drugs

NCATS researchers develop a series of assays (tests) to identify compounds that disrupt a driver of several cancers.
