• Question: do you study any other types of cancer? and if so have you thought of using stem cells to fill in the gap, when you take out the cancer cells, or does it work?

      I have worked on endometrial cancer before, it is a cancer that affects the lining of the womb in women. Like breast cancer, it is often dependent on our body’s natural hormones to grow and survive, this is why I was interested in endometrial cancer! Great question, stem cell research to replace organs/parts of an organ after cancer is a very interesting field! I think a lot more research needs to be done before this is used in patients, however.
