To deliver on the promise of next generation treatment and prevention strategies in cancer, we must address its multiple dimensions. The full complement of the diverse fields of modern biomedicine are engaged in the assault on this complexity. These disciplines are armed with the latest tools of technology, generating mountains of data. Each surpasses the next in their unprecedented and novel view of the fundamental nature of cancer. Each contributes a vital thread of insight. Information technology provides a promising loom on which the threads of insight can be woven.
