From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 7 July 2015

New Zealand researchers are looking hard at whether a sea sponge, commonly found in the Marlborough Sounds, could provide an effective cancer drug. The potential benefits of a chemical produced by the Mycale henscheli sponge have been explored in a recent article in the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal. John Miller is a professor of Cell Biology and Physiology at the School of Biological Sciences at Victoria University.
