The discovery of cancer stem cells (CSC) in certain tumor types launched a new discipline within cancer research. Many scientists are now looking to identify and characterize populations of  tumor cells which have acquired stem cell–like properties as potential sources of metastasis and therapeutic resistance.

Thermo Fisher Scientific provides optimized solutions for cancer stem cell research—from identification and culturing to genomic and functional analysis.
