Watch to discover the latest findings on cancer cells that behave like free-living organisms!

Brief abstract: Cancer is not normally contagious, but in some cases, cancer can jump from one individual to another. In the case of contagious leukemia-like cancers in clams and mussels, called bivalve transmissible neoplasia, it has even been seen jumping from one species to another. These cells blur the lines between cancer and infectious disease, and we study these unique cancer lineages to understand how they spread and how their clams hosts can evolve resistance to them.To access the speakers’ and moderator’s bios, please click here or see attached.Register here: https://asu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_6lAS0tiMRD2cnwGlTn2KrQ
