Symposium—Cancer: From Basic Science to New Treatments, Prevention, and Back

151st Annual Meeting of the National Academy of Sciences

Cancer diagnosis and treatment are among the most important examples of the impact of basic research on human health. Basic discoveries in the biological and physical sciences have paved the way for the development of such diagnostic tools as MRI and CT scans as well as for vaccines and targeted therapies. Leading researchers who work at the forefront of both basic science and the clinical applications of cancer research discuss the latest research, its implications for diagnosis and treatment, and the challenges that remain.
