Life and Near Death Experiences at the Cellular Level

Cells (Goleta) 09/12/18

Dr. Denise Montell's lab at UCSB has discovered that many different types of cells can recover from the brink of death, which has implications for cancer and degenerative diseases. They are currently investigating the mechanisms that allow this remarkable recovery so that they can be harnessed for medical treatments.
