A March full of birthdays…

March was a month full of birthdays in the Van Tine Lab. We celebrated Tony, Lenny, and Jeff as they each turned another year older. Wishing the March boys a year full of happiness, good fortune, and most of all, SCIENCE!

Welcome, Lenny!

The Van Tine lab is pleased to announce that we are welcoming Lenny Rogers, a first-year student in the Molecular Cell Biology program, as the newest graduate student in our lab. Lenny will be starting out his time in lab with researching the role of lipid biology in arginine starvation in sarcoma. Welcome, Lenny!

Study unveils new way to starve tumors

We recently published an excellent paper on sarcoma tumors that lack a crucial component of their metabolism that leaves them unable to synthesize their own arginine. By exploiting this weakness, we can design therapies that deprive tumors of their arginine supply, thus “starving” the tumors. This article features the hard work of Jeff Kremer. Visit this link […]

CTOS 2016

A few members of the Van Tine lab made their way across the sea this week to attend the Connective Tissue Oncology Society (CTOS) annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. Bethany, Jeff, Richa, Sara, and Brian himself presented posters on their research, and were met with overwhelming support and interest. We are very excited to implement […]

Farewell, Sara!

It is a sad but joyous day as we say goodbye to our medical fellow, Sara Lange, who is heading back across the hospital to continue her medical career. The lab went out to Pi Pizzeria to celebrate Sara’s great accomplishments, and we wish her the best of luck!
