When I was in film school, I remember one class being asked “Why do we make films?” and hearing many different responses. “But what about the audience?” my film professor asked. Many of the students in the class were baffled. They had never thought about important it was to effectively communicate their vision to the audience.
Science art has the power to improve science, yet you haven’t yet hired an artist? The solution isn’t as complicated as you’d think.

It’s been a while since I posted but not because things have been slow. I’ve been hard at work on several new projects. I hope you’ll be as excited as I am to see all the changes.

Cells can enter a dormant state called quiescence, and dormant cancer cells are resistant to chemotherapy and other treatments. A team led by UA Cancer Center researcher Guang Yao, PhD, has identified ways to regulate cell dormancy and “wake” these cells from their “slumber” to make them susceptible to cancer treatments.
