Tumour dormancy presents challenges for clinical control and opportunities for scientific discovery. Current pictures of the mechanisms of tumour dormancy and reawakening remain incomplete. The Cancer Research UK's third Marshall Symposium explored tumour dormancy and reawakening in all their forms. In this forum article, we highlight the key challenges and opportunities discussed at this symposium.
