In this News Bite edition, Jeff and Danielle discuss:

  • In recognition of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we discuss a new method to treat aggressive forms of breast cancer.
  • A new molecule that can act as a 'Trojan horse' for cancer cells - activated by light and destroying the cell, while leaving healthy cells unaffected.
  • The first ever pig to human kidney transplant - a huge milestone!
  • The best tardigrade (aka water bear or moss piglet) fossil to ever be found and where you can go see it for yourself.
