      In my lab we mostly use cancer cells from breast and bowel cancer, but the aspect of cancer biology I study can be applied to all solid tumours, so in theory I could use cells from any of theseā€¦ In the past I have also worked with cells from lung cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, brain cancer, kidney cancer, muscle cancer, cervical cancer, etc . I have even worked with blood cancer cell lines.
