U-M Rogel Cancer Center@UMRogelCancer

Congrats to the inaugural group of #RogelScholars, the first initiative funded by Rich and Susan Rogel’s generous gift to our cancer center! The support gives researchers new freedom to take risks & develop innovative approaches to take on #cancer.

Dr. Merajver was chosen to be in the inaugural class of Rogel Scholars awarded by the Rogel Cancer Center! This award will allow for the study of molecular targets in cancer that leads to particularly aggressive behavior. We are honored to be included amongst the inaugural class! ​

Dr. Ryan Oliver led a massive effort to develop a platform for determining the probability that a tumor contains cells that have the potential to metastasize to the brain. This work has been published in Lab on a Chip. Congrats to all!
