Cancer Research: Israel
-Cancer research was introduced to Israel in the 1950s by the Weizmann Institute. -One of Israel's first cancer-research discoveries was made by Prof. Isaac Birnbaum and Prof. Leo Sachs. They laid the foundation for differentiating between cancer cells and normal cells, and understanding the transformation of a normal cell into a cancerous cell. -While working on blood cells, Sachs discovered that cells have to "make decisions" about whether they will grow or differentiate more.
