Impact of race/ethnicity on molecular pathways in human cancer

  title={Impact of race/ethnicity on molecular pathways in human cancer},
  author={John K. Wiencke},
  journal={Nature Reviews Cancer},
Understanding the molecular circuitry of the cancer cell is within the grasp of the basic scientist; however, harnessing this knowledge to predict cancer risk requires integration of molecular and population sciences. But, what role, if any, does race/ethnicity have in cancer research and, more specifically, in the nature of genetic and epigenetic alterations that programme the malignant behaviour of the cancer cell?
