Taking Aim At Inflammation’s Role In Head And Neck Cancer

UArizona Health Sciences Connect

Dakota Reinartz, a UArizona COM-T doctoral student along with faculty mentors, BIO5 member Dr. Justin Wilson, and Dr. Julie Bauman, deputy director of the UArizona Cancer Center, are researching the role inflammation may play in the development of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Reinartz’s work with Drs. Wilson and Bauman is made possible through a National Cancer Institute training grant, known as a T32. The grant supports institutions in developing or enhancing research training opportunities for pre- and postdoctoral fellows in cancer research. The Cancer Center used the funding to establish the Integrated Cancer Scholars program.
