Researchers are identifying factors that initiate or predispose individuals to the cancer state and are uncovering ways to enhance the body’s ability to fight the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Predictive genomics and computational biomedicine are being used to study cancer development. Extracellular matrix alterations and tumor growth, chromosomal instability, cell migration, cell signaling pathways, immune cell reprogramming, drug delivery, and the impact of lipid protein interactions on cancer are all being studied. Special areas of research include bone and blood cancers and oncofertility.
