The U.S.-China Physical Sciences-Oncology Alliances (PS-OA) is the ﬁrst international alliance to focus on research at the intersection of the physical sciences and cancer biology for the expressed purpose of increasing our fundamental understanding of cancer as a basis for early detection, more effective therapy and ultimately prevention. The mission is to bring a diverse group of experts in cancer research to discuss promising aspects of future research and potential international collaborations. The goal is not limited to speciﬁc research, but to encourage a longer and broader vision to rethink cancer on its precaution, origin, evolution and novel treatment. Early research emphasis areas for the U.S.-China PSOA will include cancer evolution/evolutionary cancer medicine, computational models of cancer and selected areas of cancer genome research.
