Background Information

This site strives to make scientific research as accessible as possible regardless of your level of background knowledge of the biology concepts involved, or your level of understanding of cancer as a disease. However, some knowledge is necessary to understand even a very general description and deeper knowledge will result in a deeper understanding of the story of cancer research told in the Research Process portion of the website. If you want a firm understanding of the science and medical concepts involved in cancer research before you learn about ongoing research, or you have already read about the research going on and are looking for a more detailed description or are interested in further applications of these topics in different contexts, consult the Further Resources section.
