"The golden age of cancer research"
Research into metastasis is all-important, since this process whereby a tumor colonizes
other organs is responsible for 90% of cancer-related deaths. So what is the current state of knowledge in this area? "We are just starting to explor...

Cancer that colonizes our bodies
To Robert C. von Borstel, cancer is a metaphorical example of the perfect invasion by a founder species. Like the first pregnant finch that landed on a deserted island in the Galapagos Archipelago, the first cancer cell in the human body has to undergo many mutations through many generations to est...
