Abstract

Transport processes in cancer are the focus of transport oncophysics (TOP). In the TOP approach, the sequential negotiation of transport barriers is critical to both drug delivery and metastasis development. New and creative therapeutic opportunities are currently emerging, stimulated by the study of cancer hallmarks with the TOP approach.
