Cancer Stem Cells | BenchTalk, Episode 9


Recent advances in cell sorting and isolation techniques are providing new evidence that supports the cancer stem cell theory.

In this episode, researchers Julia Kirshner from Purdue University and John Morris and Jason Steel from the University of Cincinnati discuss the mounting evidence for cancer stem cells.

And in our science roundtable, science writers Sarah C.P. Williams and Ashley Yeager discuss the contagious cancer that is reducing Tasmanian devil populations in Australia.
