Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book covers a range of topics from the genetic and genetic factors in breast cancer to the current and future directions in breast translational research. … I have found this to be a very well illustrated text, easy to read and very informative. I would definitely recommend this book as a good read to both surgeons and oncologists.” (Tasadooq Hussain, Oncology News, Vol. 8 (5), November-December, 2013)
