In this exclusive tour of the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute, Prof. Jim Norman describes the current research taking place at the world-class cancer research facility, including cell cancer metabolism, cancer cell proliferation, and mechanisms of invasion and metathesis. Plus, Prof Owen Sansom, Deputy Director of the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute, describes his research in mimicking the natural physiological environment of cancer growth.
