TomorrowsDiscoveries DNA Rearrangements That Cause Childhood Cancer  Dr Stephen Desiderio
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: To battle invaders, our immune system deploys antibodies, made by shuffling bits of DNA. But if the DNA and developing immune cells are misshuffled, they can cause childhood cancer. Dr. Stephen Desiderio and his team study these DNA rearrangements, and they’ve discovered ways the immune system protects us from damage to our genes, gaining insight into the causes of leukemia.
