Activation of the NFIB pathway as a treatment for glioblastoma:
Glioblastoma is a deadly tumour which arises from the uncontrolled growth of glial cells in the brain. Nuclear Factor One (NFI) genes regulate normal glial cell growth, which when disrupted may cause brain tumours. This project will further investigate this result as a treatment option for glioblastoma.
