Lydia Schindler & Gretchen Case. Traces the interwoven histories of science, medicine, & cancer from ancient Egypt to the present. For several thousand years cancer was visible only in its outward manifestation. It was the invention of the microscope that revealed the cancer cell itself. Complex biotechnologies developed in the past two decades have enabled scientists to pursue, at the molecular level, knowledge of the mechanisms that trigger cancer’s uncontrolled & deadly cell growth. Fundamental biomedical research supported has advanced the understanding of cancer. Using the tools of molecular biology & molecular genetics, scientists are making great leaps in discovery, mapping out the links between chromosomes, the genes within, & cancer. Color & b&w photos.
