The work of MUSC's Neuro-Oncology research and clinical teams was featured on the cover of the August Journal of Neuro-Oncology for their work in discovering the first direct evidence that the compound DATS, found in garlic, is effective in blocking pathways of the proliferation of cancer cells and ultimately may help reduce tumor growth in patients with glioblastoma, the most lethal brain tumor.

May is the official month of brain tumor awareness and the MUSC Brain and Spine Tumor Program officially kicked off their month long series of events with a health fair on Monday, April 30th.  Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, Mount Pleasant Mayor Billy Swails and MUSC President Dr. Ray Greenberg officially launched the events with a ribbon cutting ceremony in the MUSC horseshoe.  Following the ribbon cutting, participants were encouraged to visit with vendors set up in the horseshow, test their aim in a pie throwing contest or just sit back and enjoy the music provided live by local band, The 3 Dudes.  Check out photos from the event on the MUSC Neurosciences Facebook page.
