The importance of the collaboration of the solid and liquid tumor communities

Federico Caligaris-Cappio, MD of Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele, Milan, Italy, talks about the collaboration of the solid tumor and liquid tumor research communities at the 2016 International Workshop of the German CLL Study Group (GCLLSG) in Cologne, Germany. He explains that the real problem is that the two communities do not talk to each other. But what is becoming clear, is that the issue of the microenvironment can in a sense bridge the two communities, so they can learn one from the other. It looks like in the near future not only will the two communities talk to each other, but there is likely to be common meetings and exchange of common experiences. Otherwise it would be a waste of knowledge and experience.
