Most cancer drugs today work by attacking tumor growth. Researchers at the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute, however, are taking aim at a different piece of the cancer puzzle -- preventing its ability to spread to new parts of the body, known as metastasis, which is the cause of most cancer deaths.
