    • Culturing Glioblastoma Cancer Stem Cells 

      Maas, Rebecca D., 1997-- (Northern Illinois University, 2017-05-05)
      Glioblastoma multiforme is a malignant tumor that grows in the human brain. Patients diagnosed with Glioblastomas (GBM) require very extensive and invasive treatment that includes surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. ...
    • DNA double-strand break induction by gamma radiation 

      Miller, Liam M. (Northern Illinois University, 2001)
      Radiation is a powerful tool in fighting breast cancer. However, the mechanism of cell killing is not fully understood. It is therefore important to characterize radiation so that it may be used more effectively. In the ...
    • DNA repair and a closer look at the role of Ku protein 

      Tumuliri, Srinivas S. (Northern Illinois University, 1998)
      Double strand breaks in cells may arise due to a number of reasons including mutagens and normal cellular processes such as V(D)J recombination. Unrepaired strand damage can result in broken chromosomes and cell death. ...
    • Glioblastoma multiforme tumor cells treated with Cisplatin and gamma irradiation 

      Meyers, Robert S. (Northern Illinois University, 2012)
      Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most prevalent and aggressive malignant primary brain tumor in humans. Once diagnosed, patient survival times range from three months if left untreated to a 12 percent survival rate at ...
