Time matters: Does our biological clock keep cancer at bay?

Our body has an internal biological or "circadian" clock, which cycles daily and is synchronized with solar time. New research done in mice suggests that it can help suppress cancer. The study, publishing 7 December in the ...

New toolkit reveals novel cancer genes

A new statistical model has enabled researchers to pinpoint 27 novel genes thought to prevent cancer from forming, in an analysis of over 2000 tumours across 12 human cancer types. The findings could help create new cancer ...

Cellular fuel gauge may hold the key to restricting cancer growth

Researchers at McGill University have discovered that a key regulator of energy metabolism in cancer cells known as the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) may play a crucial role in restricting cancer cell growth. AMPK acts ...
