Media Release | January 8, 2015 University of British Columbia scientists have shown that small cyclotrons – particle accelerators the size of an SUV – can replace hulking nuclear power plants as the country’s main source of medical isotopes, the radioactive atoms used for thousands of diagnostic scan across Canada each day. The demonstration last […]
BC Cancer Agency scientists make internationally significant discovery, mapping the evolution of breast cancer ‘avatars’
December 1, 2014
Vancouver – A just-published paper in the prestigious journal Nature highlights how researchers at the BC Cancer Agency are using human breast cancer ‘avatars’ — models of human breast cancers — to measure how complex cancers develop and change over time. The research is unprecedented because it uses single cancer cells to expose how breast […]
