cancer research in florida to begin clinical trials

The Orlando Sentinel reports that a University of Central Florida professor’s breast-cancer research is one step closer to moving from the lab to doctor’s offices.

The University of Central Florida and Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa have signed an agreement with GLG Pharma, a Florida biotechnology firm, to take Dr. James Turkson’s cancer-fighting compound to the next level of development with clinical trials of the compound beginning as soon as next year.
