Quotes

"We knew that epigenetic changes are associated with cancer, but didn't know whether these were a cause or consequence of cancer. Developing this new approach for 'epigenetic engineering' allowed us to test whether DNA methylation changes alone can drive cancer" said Dr. Lanlan Shen, associate professorprofessor of pediatrics at Baylor and senior author of the study
This is what Shen plans to do. "We can use different approaches to reverse methylation – turning back on silenced genes – and see whether we can prevent the tumours from occurring or treat the cancer after it has appeared"
...to pediatric surgical patients," says Epps, who is also an associate professorprofessor of orthopedic surgery at Baylor College of Medicine . "With our changes, we were able to significantly improve the percentage of antibiotics that were given during the optimal time window before surgery and as a result, combined with other ongoing quality improvement projects, we will hopefully lower our surgical site infection rate further."
Dr David Eagleman, a neuroscientist at the Baylor College of Medicine in Texas, told The Wall Street Journal "Once you are at the top, you’ve mastered the game and you may be using less energy" he said
