Summary

It is notable that the same pathways governing the cell growth, death, and differentiation decisions made during embryonic development are also common drivers of adult malignancy. In this webinar, we will explore the idea that a better understanding of developmental biology signaling pathways will advance our understanding of adult tumors and cancer stem cells as well as boost our ability to create effective therapeutics to fight a broad array of cancers.
