IU Bloomington researcher working to reveal genetic clues behind long-term survival in ovarian cancer
Ovarian cancer ranks among the top causes of cancer death in women. It’s notoriously difficult to detect early, and most women who receive an advanced stage diagnosis do not survive more than five years. But a small percentage of patients live far longer. To find out why, IU researcher Kenneth P. Nephew is a part of the Ovarian Cancer Consortium for Long-Term Survival, which recently received “Phase II” funding from the Department of Defense Ovarian Cancer Research Program.
