Scientists working on the TRACERx project have mapped how the immune systems responds to lung tumours over time
There are many unanswered questions about how and why cancer spreads around the body. But one thing we do know is that only some cancers metastasise.
In this Science Surgery post Millie asks: ‘Why doesn’t the immune system attack cancer cells?’ The short answer is it does! But sometimes it needs a helping hand from exciting new treatments.
Scientists are turning to crime-mapping tech as a new way to look at cancer.
With two complex CAR T immunotherapies now approved on the NHS in England, we look at how the health service has had to react to these exciting new treatments.
Dr James Allison and Professor Tasuku Honjo have been given a Nobel Prize for revolutionising our understanding of how the immune system sees cancer.
Brain tumours are heavily influenced by their surroundings so understanding the environment they’re in could reveal ways to destroy them.
Our new research partnership is exploring common ground between arthritis and cancer, which could bring benefits to patients on both sides.
Find out the burning questions some of our researchers want to answer as they set up their own research teams for the first time.
Drawing similarities between how the immune system reacts to lung cancer and HIV could uncover potential new drug targets.
