Cancer cells with extrachromosomal DNA (ecDNA)

Cancer Grand Challenges team eDyNAmiC has changed our understanding of how oesophageal cancer starts. In some cases, mutations scientists thought were a late effect of the disease could actually be driving it in the first place. The findings could give us a new way to intercept cancer before it becomes dangerous. Cancer Grand Challenges team eDyNAmiC has changed our understanding of how oesophageal cancer starts.
