Descrizione
Molecular Biology of Cancer: Mechanisms, Targets, and Therapeutics offers an accessible, engaging, and optimistic account of cancer biology for undergraduate and graduate students. Using the hallmarks of cancer as a starting point, the book looks at the cellular and molecular mechanisms underpinning the transformation of cells into cancer cells. After discussing the theory, each chapter then demonstrates how this knowledge can be directly applied to the development of new targeted therapies, giving the reader a clear appreciation of how the theory translates to tackling the disease. Drawing on the latest research in this dynamic field, the author makes cutting edge science readily accessible. The book features a variety of learning features - 'Pause and think', 'How do we know that?', self-tests and activities - to help students engage with, and master, the concepts presented. The emphasis is not on exhaustive coverage of the subject to the point of overwhelming with detail, but on acquiring a solid understanding of the essentials and an appreciation of how a theoretical understanding can be transformed into therapeutic benefit. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre features: For registered adopters of the book: - Figures from the book, ready to download. - A test bank of multiple choice questions, with feedback linked to the book. For students: - Web links to a range of additional cancer biology resources on the internet.
