Dr Markus Schober at New York University School of Medicine, New York, USA, is uncovering the molecular secrets that allow healthy cells to make the switch to becoming SCC cells. His team are particularly interested in how the cells “rewire” themselves into a state that helps them become cancer cells. Once revealed, this knowledge could lead to new ways to improve the early diagnosis and prevention of SCC.
