Researching new and better ways to prevent and treat cancer.
 
A newly discovered and potentially targetable signaling pathway generates slowly proliferating, chemo-resistant cancer cells. Read about the study from +Massachusetts General Hospital published today in Molecular Cancer Research: http://ow.ly/HaTvn #AACRpubs

Seyfert's Sextet: Hubble Watches Galaxies in Dance of Destruction
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is witnessing a grouping of galaxies engaging in a slow dance of destruction that will last for billions of years. The galaxies are so tightly packed together that gravitational forces are beginning to rip stars from them and distort their shapes. Those same gravitational forces eventually could bring the galaxies together to form one large galaxy. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/…/2002/22/

Wow!
 
Day 4 of the 2014 Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar - http://goo.gl/g4BawQ - 25 photos eventually. Sharpless 2-106, a nebula several light-years across. It lies 2,000 light years away, in a relatively isolated region of the Milky Way galaxy. A massive young star is responsible for the furious activity we see inside the nebula. Twin lobes of super-hot gas, glowing blue in this image, stretch outward from the central star. A ring of dust and gas orbiting the star acts like a belt, cinching the expanding nebula into an hourglass shape. Hubble's sharp resolution reveals ripples and ridges in the gas as it interacts with the cooler interstellar medium. (NASA,ESA,STScI/AURA)

In the context of the current #measles outbreak and the recent #WhoopingCough outbreak this video and story are really worth watching.
A doctor’s 1998 report of a relationship between the M.M.R. vaccine and the onset of autism has been widely rejected, but a link is still accepted by some.

Lots of earth-like planets for us to study and perhaps one day explore.
It’s a big universe, but it’s full of small planets

Dr. Lee Wattenberg, the "father of chemoprevention" died this week at the age of 92.
 
The cancer research community mourns the loss of Dr. Lee W. Wattenberg, who died Dec. 9 at the age of 92. Known as the “father of chemoprevention,” Dr. Wattenberg was president of the AACR from 1992-93 and an elected fellow of the AACR Academy in 2013 http://ow.ly/FHi28. He published a landmark paper in Cancer Research in 1966 that reviewed 36 years of animal studies on the effects of certain compounds on carcinogenesis. Read the article: http://ow.ly/FHiaM
