23rd Walk for the Mind will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2024 at the Peoria Riverplex. Registrations will open July 1, 2024. Research team at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria has taken a HUGE positive turn! What is even more exciting is that money raised from the Mark Linder Walk for the Mind is credited for making this research advancement possible!!
“Promising developments with UICOMP research are moving to next phase.”
A research team at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria has identified 30 small molecule compounds. These compounds hold promise as potential options in the treatment of solid tumor cancer. The team will complete patent applications for the compounds. Then the team will start the next phase of their research as the findings in the laboratory prepare for the next phase of research which is pre-clinical trials.
The work is led by UICOMP Assistant Professor Kiran Velpula, PhD, and Associate Professor Andrew Tsung, MD. Dr. Tsung serves as Interim Head of the Department of Neurosurgery and the Patrick Elwood MD Endowed Professor in Neurosurgery.
