A Malignant Case of Arrested Development: Cancer Cell Dormancy Mimics Embryonic Diapause

Yu Hsuan Lin, Hao Zhu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Writing in Cancer Cell and Cell, two groups investigate the nature of dormant cancer cells that persist after chemotherapy. These cells adopt a state that resembles diapause, an evolutionarily conserved adaptation used by embryos to survive inhospitable conditions. Understanding cancer diapause could uncover therapeutic strategies that reduce cancer relapse.
