Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are the mainstays of oncology, composing most of the first-line standard of care for virtually all cancers. As newer strategies are introduced into the therapeutic arsenal, particularly for earlier stages of disease, they are almost always tested in addition to, rather than instead of, the standard of care. Not only are these newer strategies proving effective in combination with the older methods, but surprisingly strong synergies are emerging among them. Several CCR investigators are finding ways to exploit these synergies for the benefit of patients. Read the full story »
Pediatric Tumors Made Personal
A mixed collection of relatively rare but often deadly pediatric tumors are collectively known as small round blue cell tumors (SRBCT) for precisely the reason one might imagine. Read more about pediatric tumors »
The Art of Silence
The transition from biology to technology is never as easy as it sounds, and taking technology out of the hands of artisans for widespread use adds another level of difficulty. Read more about the art of silencing genes »
