Cancer Research has undergone a huge transformation, indeed a revolution in recent years. The long investment in basic laboratory research is now beginning to pay off in a big way to the benefit of current cancer sufferers. Previously, treatment related research was largely confined to the use of chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy to treat cancer, which have saved many lives. We have now progressed and have entered the exciting new era of ‘translational research’.’Translational research’ refers to the convergence of basic laboratory research and clinical (i.e. patient orientated treatment research).
