Research ideas related to cancer especially ovarian cancer

Cancer Research

  1. Cell lines obtained from tumors are most commonly utilized in cancer research.
  2. In the research of cancer two online projects can help you. These are The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and The Broad-Novartis Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE).
  3. One of the most extensively studied ovarian cancers is high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) that accounts for two-thirds of all ovarian cancer deaths.
  4. Most commonly used cell line models for ovarian cancer are SK-OV-3, A2780, OVCAR-3, CAOV3 and IGROV1. This histopathological origin needs further research.
  5. No cell line has been considered optimal for tumor study; so finding an optimal model can become a separate research.
