As the medical world searches for the ultimate cure to cancer, we can celebrate the incredible advances in detecting and treating the disease.  For a long time, cancer was defined and treated based on the organ affected, but now we know that there are many subtypes of cancers - and that might explain why different people respond so differently to even the best treatments. Dr. Fred Appelbaum and Dr. Jerry Radich from Fred Hutch’s Clinical Research Division, help us understand the power of precision medicine and how it can predict treatment response.
