Prof Gerard Graham - University of Glasgow, UK
Prof Gerard Graham talks about the influence of chemokines on the behaviours of cancer cells. Chemokines regulate the movement of blood within the body, but it has been shown that tumour cells adopt these leukocyte navigational properties during metastases, moving to the same parts of the body as blood cells. Prof discusses the potential role of chemokines in the fight against cancer and talks about the early stage research that has been carried out on these proteins.
