Dr. Uta Schmidt-Straßburger meets the extraordinary professor Mike-Andrew Westhoff – Advanced Oncology

Advanced Oncology made the following post on Instagram:

“In this episode, Dr. Uta Schmidt-Straßburger meets the extraordinary professor Mike-Andrew Westhoff, a basic researcher in the Department of Pediatrics of Ulm University and lecturer of the Advanced Oncology study program to discuss some of his previous works.
The full article is found on the new section of our homepage (link in bio)

In this paper, not only a short history of cancer and cancer research is delineated but more so the possibilities that come with observational and comparative biology. Do you know how many copies of the (in)famous tumor suppressor protein TP53 an elephant has (the answer is in the paper)? What can we learn from dog oncology for transplantation medicine (the answer is in the podcast)?

Tune in to learn more.

Unfortunately, we cannot grant professor Westhoff his biggest wish, a whale observatory in Ulm. Still, we cross our fingers for any of his research proposals to receive funding that explores the possibilities of comparing certain cancers in animals in order to understand the human ones better.”
