Scientists have developed a helpful model to study cancer cell growth. There are many different types of cancer, and most differ in the way they grow, spread, and harm the body. However, all cancer cells take advantage of helpful mutations and are subsequently able to evolve quickly and adapt to their environment.
The model shown in the video above shows the potential for scientists to learn more about the growth patterns of cancerous cells. Understanding their growth tendencies could be helpful in developing anti-cancer therapies, and understanding how cancer returns after treatment could potentially help scientists learn how to make cancer treatments more effective.
