The Translational Scientist
Welcome to the latest issue of The Translational Scientist! This month, we find out why “dirty” mice might be a better model for the human immune system than their cleaner cousins in the lab. We speak to a cross-disciplinary research team who are creating a human equivalent of the water mazes navigated by lab rats. Then, we take a closer look at the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, as new studies lead researchers to question long-held beliefs about metastasis. Our Toolbox features a novel programming language for living cells, and we sit down with oncogene pioneer Bob Weinberg, who tells us how a childhood love of taking things apart has evolved into a career peering inside cancer’s complex machinery.
