Prof Swanton talks to ecancertv at the EIKCS conference about his work looking at intratumour heterogeneity in renal and lung cancer.

'Intratumour heterogeneity' refers to the subpopulations of cells with distinct genomic alterations within the same solid tumour and its discovery is likely to have implications for cancer therapeutics and biomarkers.
