UCLA Stem Cell Researchers Develop Molecular Screening Approach to Search for Drugs to Target Brain Cancer Stem Cells

A researcher with Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA has developed and used a high-throughput molecular screening approach that identifies and characterizes chemical compounds that can target the stem cells that are responsible for creating deadly brain tumors.
