Episode 1: Follow Your Nose

March 06, 2017

Chris Probert leads a team at the University of Liverpool that's invented a machine that can reliably detect the early stages of cancer in a patient with nothing more than a sniff of small sample.

It offers an alternative test that is not only much more comfortable for patients but also potentially much more accurate.
