Chi Van Dang, MD, PhD, director of the Abramson Cancer Center, is quoted in an article in The Scientist about a new study showing that cancer cells use a process called glycolysis - a metabolic mechanism that normal cells were believed to only use in the absence of oxygen - to power rapid growth during early tissue development, even when oxygen is readily available, suggesting that tumors arise out of the normal metabolic processes for tissue growth.
