Advance in Cancer Research?

Glenn Otis Brown, January 18th, 2004

NPR’s Science Friday last week spoke with Howard Chang, of Stanford Medical School’s Biochemistry Department. Chang discussed his recent article, co-authored with several colleagues and published in the Public Library of Science Biology open-access journal, which explores how scientists can learn about cancer from studying the way common wounds heal.

Like all PLoS publications, Chang and company’s article, “Gene Expression Signature of Fibroblast Serum Response Predicts Human Cancer Progression Similarities between Tumors and Wounds,” is free under a Creative Commons attribution license.

Recall that one of Creative Commons’ resolutions is to explore a Science Commons. More unencumbered scientific knowledge to come . . .
