Cancer cells possess different metabolic properties from healthy cells, and these differences drive many of the mechanisms—such as proliferation, tumor development, and metastasis—that make cancer so dangerous. 

In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Elena Piskounova and Christina Towers will discuss what we know about cancer cell metabolic properties and what these alterations mean for therapeutic development and efficacy.

Topics to be covered 

  • Metabolic adaptations underlying metastasis
  • Targeting autophagy in cancer
