Glioblastoma Multiforme
http://philanthropy.milkeninstitute.org/glioblastoma-multiforme/
"Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive malignant brain tumor involving glial cells of the brain. The prognosis for GBM patients is very poor, with a median survival time of approximately 14.6 months. There are quite a few areas of promising clinical research that could serve as the tipping point toward extending survival in GBM patients and potentially pave the way to a cure."

Tumor-Seeking Salmonella Treats Brain Tumors

"Biomedical engineers at Duke University have recruited an unlikely ally in the fight against the deadliest form of brain cancer-a strain of salmonella that usually causes food poisoning.
Clinicians sorely need new treatment approaches for glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain cancer."

Genetically Modified Bacteria Could Prevent Obesity

"At this point, there aren't even very many FDA-approved medications that effectively treat obesity and related metabolic diseases. However, a group of researchers led by Sean Davies of Vanderbilt University have genetically altered bacteria that reside in the gut, and have been shown to prevent weight gain, even over a month after the treatment ended."
