Unmask HeterogeneIty and resolve the layers of tumor microenvironment

Tumor cell heterogeneity poses a challenge to developing personalized cancer treatments. Within a tumor, cells are organized hierarchically, steered by stem-like cells which drive tumor growth, mediate metastasis, and contribute to treatment resistance resulting from genetic and epigenetic events that change the constitution and function of a tumor and the surrounding cells. Understanding that heterogeneity, especially based on the small number of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) found in liquid biopsies, will lead to breakthroughs.
