The abnormal function of the CYMC gene is still an enigma waiting to be solved and McGill University’s, Jerry Pelletier has decided to take a crack at it.
The abnormal function of the CYMC gene is still an enigma waiting to be solved and McGill University’s, Professor Jerry Pelletier, has decided to take a crack at it.
As an accomplished professor in the biochemistry and oncology departments at McGill University, Professor Pelletier has numerous publications in the field and over 20 years of experience so it’s no wonder his ground-breaking study was selected as the 2013 recipient Lymphoma Canada’s Research Fellowship award.
This innovative study entitled “Validating Tumor Suppressor Genes in Burkitt Lymphomas ” will focus on the variety of genes that cooperate with the CYMC gene to drive cell proliferation in lymphoid cancers. Lymphoma is the number one diagnosed cancer affecting young adults today, and as a result, raising awareness in scientific and public realms would prove beneficial to thousands worldwide. Professor Pelletier is definitely an advocate for the cause and his continued dedication to this study is proof that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Congratulations Professor Jerry Pelletier!
