One Giant Step for Cancer Moonshot

On Wednesday, a blue ribbon panel of cancer researchers and patient advocates released a set of 10 recommendations as part of the Obama Administration’s “cancer moonshoot” initiative, which strives to accomplish a decade’s worth of scientific progress in about 5 years.

Among other ideas, the report proposed comprehensive networks for tumor profiling, immunotherapy clinical trials, expanded genetic testing for certain cancers, and research on “rogue” proteins that cause cancer in children.

The panel’s recommendations have been accepted by the moonshot task force, which plans to release its own full report next month and lobby Congress for funding.

Always good to see more funding for cancer research.
