Decoding Cancer Immunology: Hunting Hidden Tumors
Video

The immune system is constantly on the lookout for threats, but cancer isn’t always easy to spot. Some cancer cells can fly under the radar. Now, advanced sequencing technologies are enabling scientists to investigate the unique genetics of both cancers and immune responses in individual patients. This means researchers can develop treatments that boost the immune system and help the body win its battle against cancer.

What Is the Biggest Single-celled Organism?
Video

The elephant is a creature of epic proportions — and yet, it owes its enormity to more than 1,000 trillion microscopic cells. And on the epically small end of things, there are likely millions of unicellular species, yet there are very few we can see with the naked eye. Why is that?

Prostate Cancer: Brachytherapy’s Fight for Survival
Video

Brachytherapy has a robust track record as a treatment for prostate cancer. But this treatment seems to be going out of fashion, in favor of more modern, more expensive alternatives. Since evidence suggests that brachytherapy is cost-effective for some patients, many oncologists are keen to make sure it remains an option.

The Remarkable Flexibility of Our Genome
Video

Dr. Yonatan Stelzer is an expert in the emerging field of epigenetics, which allows interruption of genetic code in many different ways, determining what cells will become. By decoding epigenetics in a normal developmental context, he is hoping to learn how these key processes can go awry, leading to diseases and cancer.
