Breakthrough research answers mysteries behind vital cancer-suppressing gene

A breakthrough study from researchers at the University of Melbourne has uncovered a vital genetic mechanism that sheds light on how a vital cancer-suppressing gene prevents tumors from developing. This research will not only help identify certain patients who are at a higher risk of developing specific cancers, but also directs researchers on a new path toward targeted and safer treatments…
