Mitochondria and Cancer Hardback

Edited by Keshav Singh, Leslie Costello

Description

Weareenteringintoaneraofre-awakeningoftheimportanceandinterestinthe role ofaltered intermediary metabolisminthedevelopmentandprogressionof malignancy.

Therefore,thisbookMitochondriaandCanceristimelyandrelevant tocontemporaryandfutureresearch,training,andeducation.

Thehallmarkstudies ofOttoWarburgetal. (1926)sparkedtheeraoftumorcellmetabolism. Fromthen untilaround1980,studiesofintermediarymetabolismofnormalandmalignant cellsweremajorareasofresearchandofgraduateandpostgraduatetrainingin biomedicalsciences.
