One of the greatest afflictions associated with cancer is its spread throughout the body and organs, known as metastasis. What if a therapeutic could be engineered to block the pathway of metastasis, thus blocking cancer’s progress? This is precisely
the crux of Dr. Jamie Spangler’s research. Her group has, first, delineated cancer’s pathway, and, secondly, has engineered multi-specific antibodies that potently block metastasis. Dr. Spangler’s work combined with anti-cancer therapies
shows exciting promise in the fight to overcome the ravages of cancer. In this podcast, Dr. Spangler discusses her work in considerable detail, and also describes her personal journey and transformation into protein science.
