According to the World Health Organization, cancer is among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite enormous efforts of cancer researchers all around the world, the mechanisms underlying its origin, formation, progression, therapeutic cure or control are still not fully understood. Cancer is a complex, multi-scale process, in which genetic mutations occurring at a sub-cellular level manifest themselves as functional changes at the cellular and tissue scale.
