Johns Hopkins Physical Sciences-Oncology Center is part of a network of centers studying how physical forces affect the spread of cancer. Every quarter, the National Cancer Institute complies a list of recent publications from all the participating centers. So if you want to keep up with what the Johns Hopkins PS-OC and other groups have been up to on their quest to discover the physical science mechanisms behind metastasis, look no further than this list which you can download here.

Using the physicals sciences to study cancer offers a new approach over the “traditional” genetic means of studying the disease. To learn more about the unique philosophy behind the NCI’s PS-OC network of centers visit this link.
