    Gioeli Lab has created a 3-D cancer tumor model which can replicate the complex nature and behavior of a real tumor

    “This model enables us to understand the inner workings of tumors to systematically identify and test new ways to treat cancer,” said researcher Dan Gioeli, PhD, of UVA’s Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer Biology and the UVA Cancer Center.

    Two undergraduate researchers receive Harrison Fellowships for research in the Gioeli lab

    Congratulations to Ashe Allende and Rose Sleppy, two undergraduates in the Gioeli lab who received Harrison Fellowships!  Read more:

    Dr. Gioeli and his UVA research laboratory further advance cutting-edge tumor modeling and research

    The Gioeli lab continues their work with the HemoShear platform to better understand complex cancer biology. The goal is to one day use these models to develop optimal treatments for specific individuals’ tumors. The collaboration with HemoShear [can] potentially be used to make new discoveries about how drugs work and which ones will be most […]

    Kinase discovery could lead to more effective treatments for prostate cancer

    “A newly discovered connection between two common prostate cancer treatments may soon make prostate cancer cells easier to destroy. Drugs that could capitalize on the discovery are already in the pipeline, and a clinical trial to test whether the finding could improve treatments for prostate cancer patients could be only a few years away. – […]

    Prostate cancer research may allow to treat cancer cells more effectively

    The Gioeli lab researchers screened for proteins that regulate prostate growth, and they found a protein that controls the response of prostate cancer cells to current treatments.  Read and view more about this on Newsplex
