Why don't we get more cancer: The critical role of extracellular matrix and microenvironment in malignancy and dormancy?

Mina Bissell has been recognized for her lifetime contributions to the fields of breast cancer research, the enhanced role of extracellular matrix (ECM) and the nucleus environment to gene expression in normal and malignantt tissues. These works have ushered and have changed some central paradigms that have strengthened the importance of context in the development of cancer.
