As tumors are studied in fairly separate, broad areas, such as basic biological sciences, pathology, oncology, and epidemiology, this book brings together these perspectives, providing an all-inclusive text that benefits all researchers, while also providing an avenue for translational research.
- Integrates both cell mechanisms and tumor physiopathology- Brings together research and perspectives from basic biological sciences, pathology, oncology, and epidemiology, providing an all-inclusive text- Provides a concise tumor reference for the tumor researcher and oncologist- Includes appendices for foundational material- Brings out the cell detail of tumors
