Cancer Spread Metastasis
Scientists have developed an entirely new way to look at tumours. And it's helped them solve the mystery of how some pancreatic tumours develop.
Anh Hoang Le, a PhD student at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow, studies two proteins that we know curiously little about: CYRI-A and CYRI-B.
It's hard to talking about cancers 'knowing' something, but they can have predictable patterns of spread. And scientists are beginning to understand why.
Our researchers have discovered a way to halt breast cancer spread in mice, by blocking a molecule called asparagine. But what does this mean for patients?
We spoke to Professor Margaret Frame, from the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, about her OBE for her contribution to cancer research.
Find out the burning questions some of our researchers want to answer as they set up their own research teams for the first time.
Researchers believe that focused high doses of radiotherapy could one day replace surgery for small cancers in certain organs.
Giving a single dose of radiotherapy to patients with cancer that has spread relieves spinal cord compression.
