About this Book

***NEW for 2015: Reviews in Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine***

From 2015 onwards, the Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine will be getting a makeover. From March 2015, it will become Reviews in Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine. All new articles will be published in a 'Volumes and Issues' format. All previously published articles will be archived by topic.

All bookmarks will continue to function as normal after the redesign and look forward to welcoming users to our new format.

Cancer Stem Cells

FREE Special Collection:

Stem Cells and Cancer

A recent discovery by a team at the University of Oxford in the UK brings us closer to confirming the existence of cancer stem cells and could lay the foundation of better treatments that would attack the disease at its root.

EMCBMM has a number of articles, currently FREE on cancer stem cells, providing much needed background information to this new discovery:

Cancer Stem Cells
Mei Zhang and Jeffrey Rosen, University of Pittsburgh, USA

The Stem Cell Niche and Its Role in Self-Renewal, Aging, and Malignancy
Peter Breslin, Andrew Volk and Jiwang Zhang, Loyola University Medical Center, USA

Prostate Tissue Stem Cells and Prostate Cancer Progression
Collene Jeter and Dean Tang, University of Texas, USA

Stem Cells and Colon Cancer
Simone Di Franco, Antonia Benfante, Flora Iovino, Sebastiano Bonventre, Francesco Dieli, Giorgio Stassi and Matilde Todaro, University of Palermo and IRCCS Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri, Italy

Therapeutics Against Cancer Stem Cells: Targeting the Root of Cancer
