Aimin Peng, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the department of oral biology at the UNMC College of Dentistry has received a R01 grant totaling $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health. The grant is aimed at investigating a novel molecular mechanism that allows cancer cells to proliferate and cancer to recur following initially successful chemotherapy or radiation therapy. The ultimate goal is to gain a better understanding of how cancer cells develop resistance to treatment and, in so doing, provide the potential to develop more effective cancer therapies. The five-year grant begins April 1.
