Robert Jenkins, M.D., Ph.D., Discusses Glioma Research
Bill Morice, II, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology in Rochester, Minn., sat down with Robert Jenkins, M.D., Ph.D., Consultant in the Division of Laboratory Genetics, to chat with him about his glioma research and the recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on which Dr. Jenkins is the principal author.
Dr. Jenkins explained that his research looks at the genetics of gliomas. About 20 years ago, his laboratory found an alteration in glioma DNA. Then, about five years ago, two other laboratories discovered two more alterations. Dr. Jenkins’ team tested those three alterations and found that they could put the gliomas into DNA categories completely independent of the pathology.
