Abstract

Molecular Biology of Cancer: Mechanisms, Targets, and Therapeutics offers the most engaging and accessible account of cancer biology that makes the link between our understanding of cancer and the development of new therapeutics crystal clear.

Provides an engaging and manageable route into the complex subject of cancer biology

Describes the theoretical basis of cancer biology and shows how this theory is applied to develop new cancer therapies, giving students a clear appreciation of how theoretical knowledge can be translated into therapeutic strategies

Draws on the latest research in this dynamic field but presents it in a manner readily accessible to the student.

New to this edition: New full colour diagrams help students to visualize the key concepts explained in the text more effectively.

Expanded coverage of tumour immunology and immunotherapy, discussing tumour suppression and tumour promotion mechanisms of the immune system and the exciting new applications of this knowledge towards developing cancer immunotherapies
