Cancer and Its Environment 2014-2015

Cancer is one of the world's biggest killers. Cancer is initiated from cells with specific genetic mutations that cause them to lose control of proliferation. This loss of proliferative control, whilst necessary, is not sufficient to cause cancer; subsequent mutations and selection need to occur. Cancer is an evolutionary disease, where rounds of mutation and selection will drive the emergence of a tumor. The selection pressures that a growing tumor encounters are manifold but can largely be classified as microenvironmental. The tumor microenvironment consists of the extracellular matrix..
