Could chicken eggs help revolutionize cancer treatment for children?

Each year, on average 880 children in Canada under the age of 15 are diagnosed with cancer.

Dr. James Lim is a part of a research team helping to bring new hope to children battling hard-to-treat cancers. Dr. Lim and his colleagues are the first scientists in Canada to use the chicken egg model (technically known as the chorioallantoic membrane or CAM) in the field of pediatric cancer research.
