Grant supports collaborative approach to ovarian cancer treatment research

Michael Press, professor of pathology at the Keck School, and his collaborators from several other institutions are examining the genetics of ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer frequently goes undiagnosed until it has spread, making it difficult to treat and often fatal. Research into genetic mechanisms of ovarian cancer at USC recently received a boost thanks to a more than $300,000 grant from the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Medical Research Foundation.
