Waterloo researcher discovers molecules that could kill cancer cells while protecting healthy cells

Qing-Bin LuProfessor Qing-Bin Lu initiated a novel molecular-mechanism-based program to discover a new class of non-platinum-based-halogenated molecules that kill cancer cells, yet prevent healthy cells from being damaged.

The research and pre-clinical trial results were published this month as an open access article in EBioMedicine, a new joint research-clinical journal from the editors of Cell and The Lancet.
