Scientists at Cardiff University hope their work on white blood cells could help fight cancer.
The cells are part of the immune system that protect the body against infectious diseases. Now, scientists at Cardiff University hope that by redesigning those cells, they could help to fight against cancer.
If it works, it could be a major breakthrough.

South Wales could become the home of the UK's first proton beam therapy treatment centre which helps treat the most complex and hard-to-reach cancers.
The centre, due to open at Celtic Springs Business Park, Newport, by 2016, will see Wales leading the way in the treatment.
There are currently only 40 therapy centres around the world.
The potential centre has been described as a 'significant inward investment to Wales' that will 'save lives on Welsh soil'.
Proton beam therapy provides a highly targeted radio therapy and has been described as a so-called 'miracle' treatment. It's estimated that by 2017 the NHS demand for proton beam therapy will reach 1,500 patients.
Currently people have to go abroad for the treatment, including two-year-old Freya Bevan, from Swansea, who suffers with a rare brain tumour.
Proton therapy also helped saved the life of Ashya King who was recently declared cancer-free after proton beam therapy in Prague.
This is an exciting and important development of the UK provision of cancer treatment. As things stand, patients who can benefit from this treatment have to go abroad, often at a great expense to the NHS.
The creation of these centres will go a long way to ensuring the very best of treatment is available in the UK.
It's been described as an "obvious injustice that's being done to Welsh patients".
Today nearly 100,000 people have called on the government to introduce a cancer drugs fund for Wales.
England already has one, and campaigners say it's not fair that people there are getting drugs on the NHS that aren't as available here. Megan Boot reports.
A Welsh cancer charity is warning people to take extra care as they prepare for a Sunday in the sun.
Recent figures from Tenovus show malignant melanoma is now one of the most common cancers in people aged 15-35 and cases have almost quadrupled in the last 30 years.
The charity is touring beaches, schools and parks in an ice cream van to raise awareness of the risks of sitting out in the sun.
A new way of measuring waiting times for cancer treatment is being trialled across Wales in a bid to improve patient care.
Doctors say the current targets - where patients need to be treated within 62 or 31 days, depending on how they are referred - is too 'blunt' an instrument.
But the Conservatives say the Welsh Government is simply scrapping targets it has failed to meet since 2008.
