Exploring the Frontiers of Medicine: How We Will Save Lives From Cancer

View Slide Presentation

After decades of painstaking and determined research, is there finally a real prospect of winning the war on cancer? What changes can we expect to see in detection and treatment? How will all the various stakeholders work together to maximize the opportunities that have evolved over years of history and experience? Melanoma is a perfect case study lens through which to examine these questions and explore the frontiers of medicine. Very recent clinical advances are providing exciting "proof of principle" for innovative approaches to save lives from this deadly cancer, and these successes provide hope for many other cancers as well.
