A team led by Broad researchers used a new method to systematically test genes for their possible involvement in drug resistance in melanoma. Among the findings was a surprising suspect: a biological pathway typically involved in healthy melanocyte skin cell development. Read this news story to learn more.

Building on the enormous success of the first phase of SIGMA, the Broad Institute today announced that the Carlos Slim Foundation has made an additional contribution of $74M to launch the second phase (SIGMA 2) of this major biomedical partnership aimed at harnessing genomic medicine for the benefit of Latin America and the world. SIGMA 2 aims to develop new biomedical approaches to some of the most crucial problems in public health, including cancer, type 2 diabetes, and kidney disease.

Broad scientists led the development of a cell culture model that mingles leukemia stem cells with stromal cells, mimicking AML's niche in the bone marrow. The system enabled a high-throughput screen, which uncovered a dozen inhibitors of leukemia cells, including statins. The work offers a fresh approach to hunting for new classes of cancer stem cell-directed therapies.
