Breakthrough Could Bring New Cancer Treatment

Mar 23, 2019

It took a mechanical engineer to discover that cancerous cells use a previously unknown mechanism, a repetitive physical movement, to actually break through the surrounding membrane to become invasive. Ovijit Chaudhuri, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Stanford University and the lead researcher on the project, speaks about his new findings that could lead to the discovery of new cancer therapies and help to stop the disease in its pre-invasive stage.
