Congratulations to Dr. Jack Griffith, Distinguished Professor or Microbiology & Immunology and Biochemistry & Biophysics whose work was highlighted in a special NOVA scienceNOW video series (originally aired in July 2009).
Life is full of choices, and even cells come to a fork in the road. They have to decide what to do about damage to their DNA: repair the damage, force the damaged cell to die, or allow the damage to transform the cell to a tumor cell. Read more on the work from the Xian Chen lab in the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics that was published in Cell Death & Disease.
