Metastasis is the tipping point, when a malignant tumor goes from bad to nearly unstoppable. Recently, the laboratory of Wistar's Frank Rasucher, III, Ph.D., announced their discovery of what may be a potent driver for metastasis, a protein called LIMD2. Learn more about how LIMD2 might represent a new era in stopping the spread of cancer.
