Description / Abstract:


This ESMO Handbook of Principles of Translational Research is an important new addition to the ESMO Handbook series that have been so well received by the oncology community. Translational research is a broad field that is focused on accelerating the transfer of knowledge from the laboratory to the patient and back. In recent years we have already witnessed some impressive benefits from this approach such as the emergence of novel targeted therapies, identification of gene mutations and expression profiles predictive of tumor behavior and response to therapy and advances in tumor immunology and angiogenesis, just to name a few. This Handbook is aimed at further facilitating the understanding of the key important areas of translational research and is directed to a general oncology audience as well as to those involved in research. The three distinguished editors of this Handbook, Drs Greil, Mellstedt and Schrijvers have done a superb job at identifying the key topics in the field and have incorporated superb contributors. All important areas of translational research are being covered from the basic mechanisms governing the malignant cell to new targets, gene and protein profiling and drug development issues. I am confident that you will find this book to be an enjoyable and useful companion in your daily work.
