Glioblastoma is the most common and most aggressive form of brain cancer in adults. Broad and MGH researchers are gaining a deeper understanding of the core set of “switches” that control the behavior of the most aggressive of these glioblastoma cells, which can resist treatment and may drive tumor growth. Learn more about their discoveries on the BroadMinded blog.

Why do some people come down with the flu more often than others? The reason is part genetic, part environment, and part interactions between the two. A team led by scientists from the Broad Institute has developed an experimental pipeline to take immune cells for a biological “test-drive” by stimulating them in the lab. Their work reveals how genetic variants alter gene activity and provides a model for exploring the full landscape of genetic variation’s impact on immune disease.

A first-of-its-kind study by Broad and MGH researchers has shown that the cellular makeup of glioblastoma tumors is more heterogeneous than previously thought. The team examined the expression of thousands of genes in individual tumor cells to chart this diversity. Read the Broad press release to learn more:

The Boston Globe shares “seven things you should know” about the Broad Institute's Executive Vice President and new Kendall Square Association President Alan Fein. Read the profile to learn more.
Alan Fein was already playing a key role in Kendall Square as executive vice president of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the renowned genomics research center, before taking over as president of the Kendall Square Association. He has succeeded Tim Rowe, chief executive of the Cambridge Innovation Center, who founded the group and turned it into an influential voice in the tech hub around the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
