News & Events

  • Cancer Center employee appreciation event

    On July 30, MGH faculty and staff gathered under the Bulfinch Tent to celebrate the many contributions of MGH Cancer Center employees and the one hundred 2015 honorees.

  • 2015 Nobel Prize Laureate Summit on Biomedical Sciences: Frontiers in Cancer Research

    The 2015 NPLS will focus on Frontiers in Cancer Research, and cover some of the latest advances in the understanding and treatment of cancer. The conference brings together some of the world's leading scientists and physicians who have made dramatic breakthroughs in cancer therapy. Massachusetts General Cancer Center Director, Dr. Daniel Haber, is a keynote speaker.

  • Catwalk for cancer

    Daniel A. Haber, MD, PhD, director of the MGH Cancer Center, and Kate Robbins, a 10-year survivor of advanced stage lung cancer, were among the many models who walked the runway at the Friends of the Mass General Cancer Center Fall Benefit: Couture for Cancer Care at the Revere Hotel in Boston.

  • Stars shine at the one hundred

    The Mass General Cancer Center hosted the seventh annual the one hundred gala on June 10.

  • Third-generation device significantly improves capture of circulating tumor cells

    A new system for isolating rare circulating tumor cells – living solid tumor cells found at low levels in the bloodstream – shows significant improvement over previously developed devices and does not require prior identification of tumor-specific target molecules.

  • Potential treatment target identified in an animal model of pancreatic cancer

    Detailed analysis of genes expressed in circulating tumor cells – cells that break off from solid tumors and travel through the bloodstream – has identified a potential treatment target in metastatic pancreatic cancer.

  • The path to personalized cancer treatment

    In the largest study of its kind, researchers have profiled genetic changes in cancer with drug sensitivity in order to develop a personalized approach to cancer treatments.

  • MGH Cancer Center team identifies potential treatment target for KRAS-mutated colon cancer

    Researchers from the MGH Cancer Center have identified a new potential strategy for treating colon tumors driven by mutations in the KRAS gene, which usually resist both conventional and targeted treatments.

  • MGH launches new award to support research

    MGH Hotline 6.10.11 Selected from among 115 applications from across the MGH research community, the inaugural MGH Research Scholars recently were announced at the annual meeting of the MGH Research Advisory Council (RAC).

  • Overexpression of repetitive DNA sequences discovered in common tumor cells

    MGH Cancer Center researchers have discovered a previously unknown feature of common tumor cells – massive overexpression of satellite repeats, which are DNA sequences that do not code for proteins. The findings may improve understanding of tumor development and provide a new cancer biomarker.

  • Largest study of genomes and cancer treatments releases first results

    The largest study to correlate genetics with response to cancer drugs releases its first results today. The researchers behind the study, based at the MGH Cancer Center and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, describe the responses of 350 cancer samples to 18 anticancer therapeutics.

  • Celebrating the one hundred

    MGH Hotline 06.25.10 MORE THAN 650 guests attended the MGH Cancer Center's annual fundraiser, the one hundred, held June 2 at the Westin Boston Waterfront.

  • Connecting the Dots
