Vivian Li, group leader of the stem cell and cancer biology lab at the Francis Crick Institute, talks tumours and how she aims to target them.
Scientists have mapped out some of the earliest changes that occur in seemingly healthy breast tissue long before any tumours appear.
We find out how stem cells could provide clues to how bowel cancer develops.
From targeting cancer stem cells to reawakening sleeping cells, research is finding the answers to how brain tumours develop.
The damage caused to specialised stem cells’ DNA could help explain why drinking increases the risk of cancer.
For the first time, scientists have used the gene-editing tool CRISPR to tweak the DNA of specialised brain stem cells, which could help us understand certain brain tumours better.
Scientists from the UK and Sweden have discovered important cells that breast cancer can stem from in mice.
Our Stand Up To Cancer-funded researchers in Birmingham are turning their immune cell knowledge into ways to tackle infection after treatment.
A new drug that can kill specialised stem cells could lead to a new treatment for a type of leukaemia.
