Description

The first complete overview of progress in the field.
The two volumes contain selected articles from the prestigious online Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine, fully updated and enriched with numerous new contributions from many eminent scientists.
Divided into three parts, the first gives a thorough introduction to cancer biology, while Part Two covers therapeutic approaches for all major forms of cancer, and the third part deals with cancer diagnostics.
The result is a one-stop resource for advanced students, postdoctoral researchers and start-up companies.
