Research in finding more effective treatments and cures for blood cancers is proceeding at an extraordinary and positive pace.
In my laboratory at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center — which leads the nation in blood cancer research — we are pursuing many innovative approaches. We now better understand the effects of genetics, immunity and diet on the course of cancer.
We’re finding the genes that cause blood cancers.
We have demonstrated the effects of specific genes on cancer, and have developed new genetic therapies that may reverse the lethal nature of this dreaded disease.
