In this episode we’re taking a road trip from Philadelphia to Baltimore, exploring stories of chromosomal cut-and-paste, cancer cures and Henrietta Lacks’ incredible cancer cells.
In this episode, sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific, we’re taking a look at how genomic technologies are transforming cancer care – now and in the future, and the importance of making sure that these advances are available to all.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney brings you exclusive excerpts from her new book Rebel Cell, exploring where cancer came from, where it’s going, and how we might beat it.
How two women – a scientist fascinated by dancing mice and a seamstress with a deadly legacy – who made significant contributions to cancer research.
Today let’s delve into a curious case involving induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and leukemic stem cells (LSCs). Most blood cells derived from iPSCs are unable to engraft in immunodeficient mice. However, Wesely and colleagues observed an exceptionally high engraftment efficiency of cell lines derived from an individual affected by acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In[…]

Exploring the latest advances in health technology such as CRISPR-based gene therapies, infection-fighting bacteriophage and a cure for HIV.
We’re digging into some of the mysteries around what’s often seen as the ultimate genetic disease: cancer.
The Zebrafish Interest Group at the University of Utah held its first Utah Fish Conference (UFC) on October 8, 2018. The conference was organized by pre- and post-doctoral trainees to celebrate the University’s Zebrafish Interest Group (ZIG), as well as to unite the Mountain West fish community. This 1-day event hosted over 80 attendees from[…]
Most solid tumours with metastatic potential show a high degree of chromosomal instability. A study published in the journal Developmental Cell demonstrates that chromosomal instability itself promotes invasive behaviour. The researchers identify the oncogene Fos and the tumour suppressor Capicua as necessary molecular elements mediating this invasive behaviour. Barcelona, 26 September 2018.- Metastatic tumours are[…]
