Structural Biology in Cancer Research

One of the major areas of attentiveness is cancer research. Cancer is defined as the abnormal growth of cells. There are numerous types of cancer that affects people of all age. Structural biology combines with molecular biology in order to design novel drugs mainly to cure cancer. The biologists accomplish research in order to understand the macromolecules, identify different drug targets and improvise cancer remedy. The major part of research is being carried out in the area of cancer. The main aim is to design and discover novel and effective drugs to cure the disease. Basic biology combined with molecular modelling mainly aims at drug medication planning. Eventually, many researchers in Structural biology carry out cancer research to broaden the exploitation of molecular understanding of biomolecules in the advancement of novel cancer therapies. Cancer immunotherapy is also used as the response of immune system to decline level of cancer. Immunotherapies can be a better way of treating cancer. The malignant tumour cells are attacked by stimulating the immune system as these cells are responsible to exploit the fact that cancer cells often have molecules on their surface that can be detected by the tumour-associated antigens
