MAY TOPIC | RESISTANCE TO CANCER TREATMENT

Why do some people develop resistance to cancer drugs? Researchers are on a quest to develop targeted cancer treatments. This is difficult because of how complex tumors are. Learn about current efforts to understand the molecules that cause cancer and how this knowledge could be used to develop “smarter” therapies. We will also discuss how clinical trials are an important part of advancing work in our field.
