This workshop will focus on the science of cancer to help participants understand how and why cancer grows, how cancer is treated, and how we can use the blood to help. Participants will learn basic cell biology, the differences between cancer cells and normal cells, how cancer grows and spreads, and the reasons why cells become cancerous. They will explore common myths about cancer and learn how a blood test for cancer could change the face of cancer care.
