Science Says: Unavoidable typos in DNA help fuel cancer

Cancer patients often wonder “why me?” Does their tumor run in the family? Did they try hard enough to avoid risks like smoking, too much sun or a bad diet? New research suggests random chance may play a bigger role than people realize.

Cell Division and Cancer Risk

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how random mutations during cell division can contribute to cancer.

Synchronized Division

This activity explores an image of early embryonic cells, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cell division and development.

Cancer as a Genetic Disease

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how understanding the mutations that cause cancer can guide the development of targeted drug therapies.

From Cancer Genomics to Cancer Drugs

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how genetic data reveal common mutations in cancer and can help uncover shared genetic mechanisms among different cancer types.
