Disrupting Cancer Metastasis

Title: Disrupting Cancer Metastasis
Description: The spread of cancer cells from the primary tumor to other sites in the body, a process called metastasis, is responsible for most cancer deaths. NCI-supported research—driven in part by the Metastasis Research Network—is diving into the complex mechanisms underlying the metastatic process, including its early triggers, the adaptation to new environments, the influences from surrounding tissues and immune cells, and the development of drug resistance.
