The genomic era has allowed enormous strides in our understanding of the molecular changes that underlie malignant transformation. Mutations have been discovered that are critical drivers of large cross-sections of human cancers. These discoveries have allowed us to find drugs that target these drivers and make important strides in treatment. Genomics and high-throughput technologies have illuminated the complexity of cancer and the facility with which cancers adapt during their natural history. The field is evolving rapidly with new discoveries and new drugs reported monthly. This book is a timely foundation for understanding in context the origins of molecular oncology and its future directions. The content reviews available technologies for the analysis of cancer tissues and genes; summaries of key oncogenic pathways from a molecular perspective; the technologies, pathways and targeted therapies of a wide range of human malignancies; and new pharmacologic therapies that have a common mechanistic target.

Cancer, which has become the second-most prevalent health issue globally, is essentially resulting from a malfunction of cell signaling. Understanding how the intricate signaling networks of cells and tissues allow a cancer to thrive - and how these networks can be turned into potent weapons against it - is the key to managing cancer in the clinic and improving the outcome of cancer therapies. In their ground-breaking textbook, the authors tell a compelling story of how cancer works at the molecular level, and how targeted therapies - using kinase inhibitors and other modulators of signaling pathways - can contain and eventually cure it. The first part of the book gives an introduction into the cell and molecular biology of cancer, focusing on the key mechanisms of cancer formation. The second part of the book introduces the main signaling transduction mechanisms responsible for carcinogenesis and compares their functions in healthy versus cancer cells. Coloured figures and the text which is written in plain style make the complex topic easy to understand. Specially prepared teaching videos on key concepts and pathways in cancer signaling illustrate the most relevant aspects and are available online.
