For almost as long as humanity has been documented, so has the disease of cancer. The earliest recorded incidence was scripted from around 1500–3000 BC from an ancient Egyptian surgical textbook on how breast tumors were removed via cauterization. Since the first record of a tumor in ancient Egypt to the modern use of targeted cancer treatments, we’ve learned a great deal about cancer—how it spreads, how it resists, and how it’s defeated.

Notably, cancer is a systemic disease. Its progression relies on a supporting cast of characters, the tumor microenvironment, where the tumor resides. The tumor microenvironment is comprised of the surrounding blood vessels, immune cells, fibroblasts, and an extracellular matrix.

ZEISS and Cell present the complexity and beauty of the tumor microenvironment in cancer research, as seen through the microscope. Our Show coincides with the launch of Trends in Cancer and its first issue, devoted to “Big Questions in Cancer.”
