Preventing Cancer Cells From Producing Fat To Stop Their Spread

Olivier Feron, a UCLouvain researcher, studies how cancer spreads through the body via metastasis. His major discovery was that cancer cells multiply by using lipids as food.

A new drug currently being tested to treat obesity may also help fight metastasis. Credit: University of Louvain
