Molecular Biology of Cancer: Translation to the Clinic book cover

Molecular Biology of Cancer: Translation to the Clinic

Advances in molecular biology over the last several decades are being steadily applied to our understanding of the molecular biology of cancer, and these advances in knowledge are being translated into the clinical practice of oncology. This volume explores some of the most exciting recent advances in basic research on the molecular biology of cancer and how this knowledge is leading to advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer.


Researchers, professors and graduate students in biochemistry, chemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, and medicine.

    "Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist-for whom the numerous references will be invaluable-but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."--British Medical Journal
