"This book is featured in 18 short, and at the same time exhaustive, chapters whose aim, true to Jose Baselga's foreword, is to facilitate the understanding of the key areas of translational research. […] I am deeply convinced this handbook provides a rewarding and enjoyable reading, embodying a common, useful tool of discussion between the research and the clinical word." Marco A.
