Poster 75: Taylor Aucutt – Tumor Genomics as a Route to Clarifying Inherited Genetics in Multiple Myeloma

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Nicola Camp

Multiple myeloma (MM), a plasma cell cancer, is one of the more common hematological malignancies and is increasing 0.8%/yr. Treatments have improved but most patients do not survive 5 years. Notably, it has double the incidence in African Americans. A novel approach, introduced by the Camp lab, for modeling gene expression in tumors has been applied to MM tumor cells in hopes to one day understand molecular racial disparities, predict survival and response to treatment in MM patients.
