This illustration features one of the main characteristics defining cancer, the presence of abnormal cells dividing without control. This is a major focus of cancer research. This image illustrates several stages of cell division or mitosis, a process of nuclear division in eukaryotic cells that occurs when a parent cell divides to produce two identical daughter cells. The stages illustrated here include interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.

The illustration was commissioned artwork for lobby of ORIC Pharmaceuticals Inc. to highlight their mission in overcoming resistance in cancer.
