Raúl Méndez: "Our modified virus only destroys cancer cells"

The Science Blog Adelantos Digital interviews ICREA researcher Raúl Méndez, head of the Translational Control of Cell Cycle and Differentiation Lab at IRB Barcelona, about his study published in the journal Nature Communications, in collaboration with Cristina Fillat from IDIBAPS Biomedical Research Institute.

Raúl Méndez talks about an innovative approach that exploits the different expression profiles of certain proteins in tumor and healthy cells, thus allowing the virus to infect only the former.
