Creating Animal Models of High-grade Serous Ovarian Cancer Cells

Mentor: Daniela Dinulescu, PhD (Brigham and Women's Hospital)

Dr. Daniela Dinulescu is utilizing an original recombined ovarian cancer cell line to inject into mice while testing two different treatments: the olaparib and the olaparib with cisplatin combination treatment. The project will ultimately demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatments as well as model the growth path of the tumor within the animal.
