Abstract:
Ned Sharpless is a UNC associate professor of medicine and genetics. Sharpless devised a blood test to measure the p16 protein, a tumor suppressor that builds up in cells as people age. The p16 test could keep cells from becoming cancerous, as well as predict how patients would handle surgery or how well wounds would heal.
