Biological interactions between cell populations in heterogeneous tumour spheroids

Abstract:

When radiotherapy is prescribed in the clinic, the tumour is assumed to be homogeneous. However, tumours are composed of many distinct cell populations that interact with each other and their environment. It is unclear how this heterogeneity affects tumour growth and response to treatment. Additionally, much of cancer research considers tumour cells in isolation, neglecting the context in which the disease develops.
