Outcompeting Cancer

Suppressing the capacity of tumours to destroy the healthy tissue that surrounds them is essential for fighting cancer-induced morbidity and mortality. Now, a new study by the Cell Fitness lab in human-derived tumours reveals a potential way of doing just that.

These findings may lead to the development of novel cancer therapies.
