Key words:

Research Institution:

Project Description:

Dr. Jenski propsed that omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil will affect the structure of cancer cell membranes and by doing so, will alter the interaction between cancer cells and the immune system. She investigated how diet changes tumor cell composition. If it can be altered, one could purposefully affect and possibly eradicate the tumor through enhanced immunologic attack.
