An April feature in The Scientist explores the current landscape of metastasis research.

Framing the story is the work of MSK’s Dr. Adrienne Boire. When she was a clinical and postdoctoral fellow at MSK, a young patient asked her why and how cancer metastasized to her spinal fluid.

The interaction changed the focus of Boire’s research. She now leads a lab at MSK where she and her collaborators are making inroads into understanding the biology of metastatic cells.
