Dr. Debashis Ghosh and his molecule discovery

By Eileen Buckley


Buffalo, NY – A Hauptman-Woodward scientist has discovered what is being considered a breakthrough for a breast cancer cure. Dr. Debashis Ghosh is a senior research scientist and principal investigator at Hauptman and Roswell Park.

Ghosh says his lab has been working for some time on a molecule that produces estrogen. He says this can cause breast cancer tumors. His discovery could lead to the creation of new drugs to treat and possibility even prevent breast cancer. Ghosh's work is featured in the current edition of the science journal "Nature."
