The initial goal of the Cancer Biology & Evolution Program (CBE) is to generate and integrate fundamental knowledge on processes that underlie the evolution of cancer. Initially, the program aims to:
- Understand interactions between the intra- and extra-cellular regulatory components of biological systems and how normal interactions are modified to give rise to malignant states.
- Identify drivers of tumor evolution and metastasis.
- Apply novel approaches to understanding of tumor growth and metastasis through systematic data integration and modeling.
