Inside Our Cellular Invaders
When we fight an infection -- any invader -- our bodies conjure inflammatory responses, immune responses. But inside some individual cells, a similar reaction happens. Beth Knight, PhD, found out what transpires inside such cells involved in a kind of brain cancer called medulloblastoma and what role a particularly important protein plays in cancer development. This is the second profile in a continuing series of features on UNC School of Medicine graduate students.
