If cable TV systems had a channel called The Cancer Network, doctors would be wise to tune in.

But there’s no such channel. So for now, they’ll just have to read articles in scientific journals that publish papers on the science of networks.

Some of the recent results are deserving of prime time.

In decades past, scientists have not possess...
