Senior Research Fellow Dr Beata Ujvari, from the Centre for Integrative Ecology, collaborating with French scientists to unlock the secrets to the animal kingdom’s ability to fight cancer in an attempt to help human medicine better prevent and cure the disease.

This is the first research to examine how animals fought and prevented cancer and how their natural preventative tactics could translate to humans.

Rather than examining and experimenting on animals in a laboratory, the team plan to observe creatures in the wild, where natural instincts will not be inhibited.
