Abstract: A well-established principle in developmental biology is that cellular context governs cell fate, differentiation, proliferation and survival. There is emerging evidence that solid tumours are also complex cellular systems, or ecosystems, in which interactions between neoplastic, stromal and immune cells govern the natural history of disease and response to treatment. In this seminar Dr Swarbrick will discuss his latest research applying cellular genomics to understanding breast cancer ecosystems, with the aim of making new discoveries relevant to disease stratification and treatment.
