How Your Cells Talk to Each Other

Featuring Shiva Malek, Director and Principal Scientist of Discovery Oncology at Genentech.

Communication is the key to good relationships. That’s true not only for people, but for our cells as well. If cellular communication goes wrong, your brain may stop processing information, or your organs might form tumors. So how do cells talk to each other? This week Jane Grogan sits down with Shiva Malek, Director and Principal Scientist of Discovery Oncology at Genentech, whose work focuses on “eavesdropping” on the chatter between cells to understand what they’re saying and what goes wrong in a diseased state like cancer. We’re sure the cells don’t mind.
