Cancer is a word that has become all too common in our daily parlance and we're burdened with knowing one too many people afflicted with the disease. The scientific community has been soldiering on with trying to find cures, early diagnostic tools and individualized treatments for patients. At this time of a "perfect storm" combining our understanding of tumor biology, human genetics and the available computing power, are we at the brink of a big breakthrough? Cancer is not new to humanity, but what is new will be presented taking into account the history of cancer and how we have arrived at where we are today. Priva Dayananth of Merck & Co., will talk about the scientific efforts to cure cancer. The discussion is to be held at the Summit Old Guard meeting. Guests are welcome.
