Every cancer follows its own complex path. An EU-funded project is developing experimental tools and a computer model to generate and test ideas on the combined impact of the body's cell and chemical processes on cancer progress. The findings should one day help researchers and SMEs find better-targeted drugs faster.

Scientists and doctors are learning more about how cancers develop. In particular, more is now known about individual cell and chemical processes in a cancer’s progression, and the impact of genetic and environmental factors. What is missing is a picture of how these all interact to influence an individual cancer’s progress.
