Science is a relatively recent activity and even great scientists can't be trusted with everything they say. The great thing about science is the method, not any single person.

Can game theory explain cancer?

As many of you know I consider evolutionary game theory an excellent tool in which to investigate cancer progression as it allows us to consider how cell interactions drive selection in an evolving tumor. Given the current emphasis in tumor heterogeneity, understanding how these interactions impact cancer progression is key.

The majority of game theoretical models of cancer are qualitative in nature but Marco Archetti at +University of East Anglia and colleagues have use it to explain experimental results in pancreatic cancer. Public good games describe a wide range of games that appear to be very applicable to cancer. This promises to be only the first study in many to come.

Killer T cell attacking cancer

"Cells of the immune system protect the body against pathogens. If cells in our bodies are infected by viruses, or become cancerous, then killer cells of the immune system identify and destroy the affected cells. Cytotoxic T cells are very precise and efficient killers."

The original footage shown was made by Alex Ritter, a PhD student on the NIH-OxCam programme, in the laboratory of Professor Gillian Griffiths at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research and the Department of Medicine of the Clinical School of the University of Cambridge. The images were acquired using an Andor Revolution spinning disk system with an Olympus microscope. Professor Griffiths is a Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow.
