Dr. Perpetua Muganda, professor in A&T’s Department of Biology, will be featured in a segment on UNC-TV’s North Carolina Now this evening (October 15). Muganda and a team of researchers from A&T and UNC-CH are investigating the role of viral factors in the aggressive nature of triple-negative breast cancer. Their work will be included in a special October report on breast cancer.
The program will air on UNC-TV at 7:30 p.m. EDT and on UNC-MX at 11 p.m.
Dr. Muganda’s study is funded by a grant from the NC TraCS Institute at UNC-CH and money from both universities. A&T and RTI International are partners with UNC-CH on its current Clinical and Translational Sciences Award from the National Institutes of Health.
