This latest issue of Integrative Biology celebrates the contribution of our Chair Mina J. Bissell to the field of cancer research. The articles included in this issue showcase new methodological advances that increase our understanding of the complex way in which cancer cells interact to disrupt normal tissue function.
Associate Editor and Board Member Mary Helen Barcellos-Hoff introduces the issue and highlights some of the great research included – read her Editorial online here.
