Peering down a microscope day after day, year after year can leave you questioning your sanity, Associate Professor Beric Henderson says. So when Sydney researchers stared down at the cancer protein they had been studying for 12 years and watched it form a perfect smiley face, it was like a believer glimpsing Jesus in their cereal. When senior scientist Dr Manisha Sharma made the happy discovery, Dr Henderson said it had the Sydney researchers musing the underlying message.


"There are different ways of looking at it. You could think it's laughing at us, but I like to think it's challenging us."

Whenever I feel a soreness in my throat, I wonder if I have cancer.
It sure is a scary word.
