Speaker: Professor Charles Swanton, UCL Cancer Institute - Tuesday 22nd November 2016 #ucllhl
While it has long been appreciated that no two tumours are identical, recent work suggests that even two regions of the same tumour can be remarkably distinct, which likely contributes to treatment failure and drug resistance. Professor Charles Swanton will explore the extent of intra-tumour heterogeneity in different types of cancer and its clinical implications.
