Dr. Jimmy Lin will share Some Good News about Cancer.
Bad news: One in three in the US will get cancer. Good news: we are in the golden age of cancer diagnostics and therapeutics. We now have completely new paradigms treating cancer, such as genetic engineering of immune cells, synthetic peptides that mimic cancer, and even viruses that are reprogrammed to kill cancer cells. In addition, we are personalizing treatment for patients based on genomic profiling and even detecting and monitoring cancer with simple blood tests. We will take a tour of the latest emerging technologies in the fight against cancer.
