      I don’t think there are any ways to make cells join back together again, but there are ways to make the new cells die. Mariam is an expert on cell death, so I’m looking forward to reading her answer.

      No, unfortunately there’s no way to reverse cell division. All we can do is kill cancer cells, or stop them from dividing more. Good question though!
