A short film about a technology invented by the UW, Fred Hutch, and Children’s Hospital is a semi-finalist at the Sundance Film Festival.

The technology, called Tumor Pain, uses a scorpion toxin to cause cancer cells in the brain light up so that they can be seen and removed during surgery, protecting nearby normal brain tissue.
