Student and Postdoc Research Videos

Spying On Breast Cancer Metastasis

In this film, M.D./Ph.D. student Edison Leung says that he and his colleagues make movies of all genres—horror, action, thriller, and war—as they capture imaging inside living breast cancer tumors. Using a combination of live cell imaging in mice, 3D animation and analogies of espionage, Edison and postdoc Allison Harney demonstrate how cutting edge research can lead to counter attacks against breast cancer metastasis. Edison was one of three scientists who won a Celldance 2015 filmmaking award from the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) to create a video about cell research that is understandable to the general public. He and Allison work in the lab of John Condeelis, Ph.D. [Creative Director/Writer: Sunita Reed; Editor: Charles Young, Einstein Communications Dept.]
