Summary of lecture:
One of the reasons why it is difficult to diagnose and treat cancer is because the cancer cell structure is formed by the mixture of different types of cancer cells. (Professor Per Uhlén is developing a method which identifies slightly differing forms of cancer cells more accurately using state-of-the-art imaging technology.)
