The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has received a $4 million grant to develop a new cancer therapy, it announced on Tuesday.
The grant came from the NationalCancer Institute to fund a research team headed by Fred Hutch scientists Christopher Kemp and Carla Grandori. They hope to find a new way to destroy cancer cells without destroying healthy cells.
The research involves a new technique that can silence thousands of genes one by one until scientists find one that stops the cancer.
The research could lead to new cancer drugs.
