Day 3: A Focus on Cancer
Celebrating Biology Week 2015
Cancer is a comprehensive disease with no boundaries or barriers. It affects a lot of people irrespective of gender, age or ethnicity or socio-economic backgrounds.
Cancer has evolved from more than just a rapidly dividing cell to a leading cause of death resulting in more than 8 million deaths worldwide.
Here, we present interesting discussions from accomplished cancer researchers who share their insight on fighting cancer using scientific collaborations and technological advancements.
