Leading cancer researchers address eight of the “big questions” facing the field as part of the inaugural issue of Trends in Cancer, published by Cell Press.
  • How can knowing the mutations that cause a patient’s cancer shape treatment?
  • Can we reduce different cancers to a set of common traits?
  • Why should we care about the tumor microenvironment?
  • Does epigenetics play a role in cancer?
  • Will immunotherapy be a turning point in the fight against cancer?
  • Will p53 ever realize its promise?
  • Can differences in cancer cell metabolism be exploited?
  • Are mouse models still relevant to study human cancers?
