Different cancers hare a number of common characteristics, most notably cancer cells divide when they should stop, they fail to maintain a mature functional state, and they move around when they should stay put.

Rapid cell division, a controlled transition to mature functionality and the movement of cells from one place to another are all events that occur during development. We can learn a lot about what goes wrong in cancer by studying these normal events in the embryo, as the genes involved in embryonic development are often reactivated in cancer, as Dr Anna Philpott will discuss.
