    More than 500,000 people in the United States die each year of cancer-related causes. Now, emerging research has identified the mechanism behind one of the most common mutations that help cancer cells replicate limitlessly. Now, a collaborative team of researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and at the University of California, San Francisco, has uncovered the mechanisms by which these common mutations result in elevated TERT expression. The team’s findings, published May 14 in Science, have exciting implications for new, more precise and personalized cancer treatments with fewer side effects compared with current treatments.
