In 10 seconds? Did you know your immune system plays an important role in fighting cancer? In the first post of our newest series, Immunity vs Cancer, we will break down the biggest breakthroughs in cancer immunology–starting with a bird’s eye view.

What’s the story?  In our Cancer 101 series, we discussed some of the key fail-safes to prevent chaos in our bodies that are programmed into our DNA (like cell death, aging, and DNA proofreading) as well as the sneaky tactics cancer cells use to override them on their anarchist mission. Outside these fail-safes, we also have an entire organ system dedicated to managing quality control among the trillions of our cells (which, of course, must be usurped for cancer to form and thrive).
