About this item
Conquering RAS: From Biology to Cancer Therapy provides introductory knowledge on how modern RAS biology is taking shape in light of newer technology development. Each chapter is written in a manner emphasizing simplicity and readability for both new investigators and established researchers. While RAS biology has been intensively studied for more than three decades, we are yet to see any effective therapeutics that could interfere in the signaling cascade regulated by this master oncogene.
Conquering RAS: From Biology to Cancer Therapy covers topics ranging from basic RAS biology to translational biology and drug discovery applications. These topics will be appealing to basic researchers working on the lab bench who seek deeper understanding of the modern concepts in RAS research. On the other side, the oncologist on patient’s bedside will find the book useful as they routinely face the daunting task of treating patients that predominantly have a disease driven by oncogenic KRAS.
- Brings together wide ranging topics in RAS basic and translational biology for the scientific and clinical community
- Showcases the recent advancement in RAS research under one comprehensive volume
- Includes video clips, color illustrations, and important website links to facilitate clear understanding of RAS in cancer research
