How Nature Has Already Beaten Cancer

Video   Jan 21, 2019 | Taken from TEDx Talks, YouTube

 

Did you know that elephants get much less cancer than humans, despite being 100-times larger? Often times, solutions to the toughest questions in medicine can be found in nature. Dr Carlo Maley, an evolutionary and cancer biologist, discusses how nature has already beaten cancer, and the possibility of using those methods in humans. 

Carlo Maley applies tools from evolutionary biology and ecology to tumors in order to understand and prevent the evolution of malignancy and therapeutic resistance.

RNA No Longer Lost in Translation

Video

"Stress granules" belong in the cellular toolbox of survival strategies. Proteins and RNA huddle together into membrane-less blobs when the cell is threatened, a mechanism which is also critical for proper maternal mRNA storage, synaptic plasticity, tumor progression and neurodegeneration. These previously invisible basic genetic processes have been captured for the first time, using fluorescence microscopy.
