Katakowski and Buller make cover of Cancer Research

Many scientific journals feature on their cover a picture from one of that issue’s articles. “Making the cover” is a sign that your research is particularly interesting and important (and may mean you have some visually stunning figures in your paper). The cover of the November 1 issue of the journal Cancer Research is graced by a picture from an article by Distinguished Professor Michael Chopp’s research group (Functional MicroRNA is Transferred Between Glioma Cells, Volume 70, Pages 8259-8263). The two lead authors are Biomedical Sciences: Medical Physics PhD alumnus Mark Katakowski, and Medical Physics graduate student Benjamin Buller, who will graduate with a PhD this December. Mark and Ben conclude their study by noting that “these findings have wide-ranging implications for our understanding of tumorigenesis and progression, as well as for the development of miRNA-based antitumor therapies.” This research was supported in part by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Mark and Ben have both been supported by the American Heart Association--Midwest Affiliate: Mark had a postdoctoral fellowship, and Ben a predoctoral fellowship.
