UW Science Now: Susan Fung: When Good Cells Go Bad
Brain tumors are made of up to 30% of the body's own immune cells; Susan Fung discusses treatments that could target these "corrupted" cells. Tumors release chemicals that attract and reprogram immune cells that then promote the tumor's growth and survival in essence, the brain helps brain tumors survive. Fung, a Ph.D. candidate in UW's Neurobiology and Behavior program, studies how different compounds affect proteins on immune cells of the brain and explains the investigation of chemicals that regulate cell movement, which include compounds that come from plants and the body, as well as manmade analogues. Presented by Engage: The Science Speaker Series as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with the University of Washington, Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
