Prof Walter Kolch - Systems Biology Ireland, UCD, Dublin, Ireland

Walter Kolch talks to ecancer at EAPM 2017 in Belfast.

He describes the importance of study on communication networks within cells, and how they are strongly linked to cancer, and a good target for therapeutic intervention. 

Today his talk focussed on neuroblastoma in children, and how this is particularly difficult to treat as it is very heterogenous.

He describes how models and predictions increased the treatment for this disease.
