The role of polyploid giant cancer cells in disease

Polyploid giant cancer cells (PGCCs) are high-DNA-content cells that undergo unusual forms of replication. Understanding how PGCC interact is vital in determining how they give rise to invasive cancers. In this video, Dr. Michelle Dawson, of Brown University, shares her research on cell metabolism and interactions and describes the importance of reliable CO2 incubators in providing a sense of security when monitoring cell cultures.
