A new study led by Sharon Campbell, PhD, professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the #UNC School of Medicine and member of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive #Cancer Center, deepens the understanding of a pair of proteins – vinculin and actin – that work together to allow a cell to migrate throughout the body. The study, published in the journal Structure, proposes a new model for understanding how these proteins bind together to facilitate cell movement.

The University of North Carolina Health Care System
Introduction
The UNC Health Care System is a not-for-profit integrated health care system, owned by the State of North Carolina and based in Chapel Hill. It exists to further the teaching mission of the University of North Carolina and to provide state-of-the-art patient care.

UNC Health Care is closely aligned with the UNC School of Medicine, a premiere public medical school, ranked 2nd in U.S. News & World Report for primary care and 21st as a research institution. Oliver Smithies, a 2008 Nobel Laureate, is one of our 1,400 full- and part-time faculty, and our 730 students are among the brightest in the nation.

The UNC Health Care System includes N.C. Memorial Hospital, N.C. Women's Hospital, N.C. Children's Hospital, N.C. Neurosciences Hospital, and the N.C. Cancer Hospital. Rex Healthcare in Raleigh, Chatham Hospital in Siler City, and Pardee Hospital in Hendersonville, are also part of the UNC Health Care System.

UNC Health Care shares UNC-Chapel Hill's historic and beautiful campus with the Old Well, the Bell Tower and four other schools of the health sciences.
