  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
