MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A senior researcher at the Blood Center of Wisconsin is getting a million-dollars toward his studies of possible treatments for diseases like leukemia.
Demin Wang was chosen to receive the newly-created John and Judith Gardetto Chair for Cancer Research.
Wang is studying the functioning pathways of white-“B”-blood cells. The Blood Center says the work could help treat certain blood-related cancers, as well as immune deficiencies and auto-immune disorders.
Wang has been at the center’s Blood Research Institute in Milwaukee for the last 13 years.
