CHECKING HOW CELLS GROW: New research dismisses a widely held assumption about cell growth
Research published today in Journal of Biology challenges an assumption about cell growth that underpins modern cellular biology. Ian Conlon and Martin Raff, of University College London, show that mammalian cells do not regulate their size in the way scientists have assumed they do since the 1970s. Conlon and Raff conducted a series of experiments, using Schwann cells from the sciatic nerve of... View News Article (2003-04-23)

Spontaneous fusion with macrophages empowers cancer cells to spread
Cancer cells that spontaneously fuse with macrophages, the immune system's healthy scavenger cells, play a key role in the metastasis, or spread of the cancer to other areas of the body. View News Article (2013-12-16)
