Cares for Cures - Supporting Research

Peak Serum Supports Cutting-Edge Research

Cares For Cures is proud to announce that it has made its first donation of Fetal Bovine Serum to support innovative research in the biotechnology field, Dr.Wendy Huang of the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Dr. Huang’s team is examining the link between DDX proteins, their ability to modify RNA structures and their link between inflammation and cancers. While still in the initial research stage, Wendy’s research may have impacts on treatment including:

• Inflammatory bowel conditions including Crohn’s disease
• Breast, prostate and intestinal cancers
• Other inflammation-related diseases

Peak Serum will continue to provide donations of FBS to researchers as an ongoing part of its Cares For Cures program. To apply for support, visit
