Centrosome overduplication contributes to tumorigenesis (2010)

Cancer can be simplistically thought of as a disease of cell growth and division. In order to improve current treatment regimes and identify new ones, the underlying mechanisms controlling cell proliferation need to be fully understood. By defining these regulatory mechanisms, targets for current chemotherapeutic agents can be further characterised and new ones identified. This will lead to the targeted developments of new classes of drugs which can be used in the fight against cancer.
