Angiogenesis and Metastasis in Cancer
This resource is a series of Powerpoint slides (and a list of further reading) on the cellular and molecular basis of angiogenesis and metastasis in cancer. It gives a short overview of the basic organisation of blood vessels and how tumours grow and spread by stimulating new blood vessel growth and metastic transformation, highlighting the signalling pathways involved in these processes.
These slides were created by Dr. Momna Hejmadi as part of her course to first and second year undergraduates in the biosciences.
