Professor Huang Chen's research team, Department of Cell and Genetics, School of Basic Medicine, XJTU Health Science Center, collaborated with Zhou Jiangbing's research team, Yale University, and published LRRC31 Inhibits DNA Repairand Sensitizes Breast Cancer Brain Metastasis to Radiation Therapy in Nature Cell Biology on October 1, 2020.


This study provides a theoretical basis for clarifying the molecular network regulation mechanism of tumor radiotherapy response and targets for radiosensitizing drugs. It also explores a new strategy for treating brain metastases through "nano-targeted drug delivery combined with radiotherapy", which has important scientific significance and clinical reference value.
