Keeping moving: Flat worms shed light on role of migrating stem cells in cancer

A new study has used flat worms to look at the role of migrating stem cells in cancer. Researchers used the worms (planarians) which are known for their ability to regenerate their tissues and organs repeatedly. By understanding how stem cells are programmed to move, what activates them and how they follow a correct path, researchers may be able to design new treatments for cancer.
