Quotes

...of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Western's Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and a scientist at Robarts Re Institute. "This is an outstanding opportunity for Canadian health reers to come together to share information and focus their diverse range of expertise on solving this important problem. "
"This is a remarkable breakthrough. A sophisticated technology," Murkin says. "What this device has done is taken infrared light and added an ultrasound wave so we're using a high frequency sound waves that will penetrate the skull."
...Hon Leong, now a Scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute and Western University. "Just as a person boards an airplane and travels to their destination, tumor cells enter the bloodstream and travel to distant organs like the liver, lungs, or brain. The hard part is getting past border control and airport security, or the vessels, when they arrive. We knew that cancer cells were somehow able to get past these barriers and spread into the organs. Now, for the first time, we know how."
...is a significant task and will require academic collaborations and partnerships," commented Trillium's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Bob Uger. "Working with world class oncology experts with experience in established tumor models will allow us to expand our understanding of this pathway and the ways it may be exploited in the treatment of cancer, either alone or in combination with other therapies."
