Abstract

Ever since the discovery of cancer stem cells in leukemia and, more recently, in solid tumors, enormous attention has been paid to the apparent stem cell nature of cancer. These concepts were the focus of the "Stem Cells and Cancer" symposium held recently at the University of California, San Francisco, and the inspiration for this overview of current research and important questions emerging in this area.
