Cancer resistance mechanism of Naked Mole Rats
Updated On Oct 7, 2018
Naked Mole Rats are eusocial mammals who have been reported to have little/no cancer in their lifetime. These subterranean rodents live up to 32 years. We speculate that these mammals might have achieved a natural cancer resistance mechanism. My Ph.D. research will focus on finding out the molecular mechanism of this speculated cancer resistance mechanism of Naked Mole Rats and apply them in mouse and human to cure cancer.
