Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display new properties, such as hyperactive growth and division, protection against programmed cell death, loss of respect for normal tissue boundaries, and the ability to become established in diverse tissue environments.

Cancer research is an intense scientific effort to understand and discover disease processes and discover possible therapies. Cellular imaging has revolutionized cancer biology by enabling cells to be seen more clearly and in more detail as well as creating meaningful functional assays for the development of drugs which prevent tumor growth and metastasis. Advanced cellular imaging techniques allow us to visualize important aspects of cancer including tumor cell mobility, invasion, metastasis and angiogenesis.
Scientists can distinguish host cells from a tumor with single-cell resolution. Visualization of many aspects of cancer initiation and progression in vivo is now possible, providing greater context and more accuracy to cancer research.
