In 2009, Dr. Patrick Lee made a breakthrough finding about the human retrovirus, a naturally occurring virus that can attack cancer stem cells while not destroying other cells. Dr. Lee is also researching the protein “p53” and its ability to suppress tumors. Understanding and harnessing the applications of both of these discoveries could be the road to finding a cure. He holds the Dr. Owen and Mrs. Pearle Cameron Chair in Basic Cancer Research, and is a professor of pathology, microbiology & immunology at Dalhousie University.
