What Is Cancer and How Can We Control It?


Date: Sunday 20 October 2013

Venue: The Braggs, The University of Adelaide

Prof Paul Davies will outline a bold new approach based on tracing cancer’s ancient evolutionary roots and its intriguing links with embryo development. He will argue that cancer is not the result of accumulated genetic damage but a deeply embedded and evolutionary-honed “subroutine” in the genetic program of life, which can be repressed by both host organism and the physician.
