The greater emphasis on metastasis research is starting to be felt in the research world. The Artemis Project® to understand the causes and prevention of metastasis has focused on the mechanism of tumor dormancy. Hear a major researcher in the field of tumor dormancy discuss what we now know about why tumor cells lie dormant, what wakes them up and what we can do about it.

  • The science behind tumor dormancy 
  • Why it may hold the key to metastasis 
  • How researching tumor dormancy is contributing to the Artemis Project®
