May: National Cancer Research Month.

It’s “National Cancer Research Month,” as declared by the United States Congress following a resolution introduced by members of the Senate Cancer Coalition in 2007. At CSHL, which has been an NCI-designated Cancer Center since 1987, cancer researchers are investigating cancer’s molecular basis with a multidisciplinary approach that aims to improve diagnosis and treatment of all major forms of the disease. Each year, research at CSHL contributes an immense trove of information to bring us closer to winning the now 40-year-old war on cancer.

In the last 12 months alone, CSHL scientists have made major advances on many fronts in this war and against many types of cancer. In recognition of National Cancer Research Month, here’s a glimpse into some of these milestones:

  1. I really hope we win the war on cancer in my lifetime. It is discouraging to be helpless when loved ones go through this horrible disease.

  2. I agree with you magnetic resonance. Let’s hope there would be someone who could find an answer for cancer.
