- Scientists at Dana-Farber demonstrate that it’s possible, early in a tumor’s growth, to identify cancer genes that endow the tumor with the ability to metastasize. This is an important step toward developing prognostic tests for identifying early-stage tumors that are likely to spread and can be treated accordingly.
