Cancer: The Beat of An Ancient Drum – Paul Davies (Video)
In this lecture Paul Davies will bring a physicist’s perspective to bear on the subject of cancer, by asking the big questions: Why does cancer exist? What are its deep evolutionary origins? How does it relate to embryogenesis? He will outline a provocative new theory of cancer as an evolutionary throwback, and discuss its profound implications for novel forms of therapy aimed at targeting cancer’s weaknesses rather than its strengths.
