Kenneth Pienta to examine dormant tumor cells

Kenneth Pienta, co-director of Hopkins inHealth and director of research for the Brady Urological  Institute, won one of five Movember Foundation-Prostate Cancer Foundation Challenge Awards to study a biotechnology that examines dormant tumor cells found in the bone marrow of prostate cancer patients. Because these dormant cells may eventually metastasize, identifying them could help predict which patients are at high risk for cancer recurrence.
