Today we remember Dr. Judah Folkman, @BostonChildrens surgeon, scientist & @harvardmed professor who founded the field of anigogenesis research, born #OTD in 1933. Now, drugs that block angiogenesis- the growth of new blood vessels- prolong life for cancer patients.
Shape-shifting stem cells may sound like science fiction, but
@LabMassague and others have found that it’s the key to cancer #metastasis. Read more about the @NatureMedicine
study from Dr. Joan Massagué, @LaughneyLab, @dana_peer, and @charlesrudin.
Our review on vascular co-option in #brainmetastasis is out. Special issue edited by @DrewDudleyLab discussing this alternative mechanism that cancer cells use to interact with vessels. No angiogenesis involved. @SpringerNature @CNIO_Cancer
