The search for a cure for cancer is the greatest epic in the history of science, spanning centuries and continents. This episode follows that search, centering on the story of Sidney Farber, who defied conventional wisdom in the late 1940s when he introduced the modern era of chemotherapy. The shift eventually galvanized a "war on cancer."
Picking up the story of cancer from the wake of President Nixon’s declaration of “war on cancer,” rapid progress is made in the lab in understanding the essential nature of the cancer cell. This leads to the revolutionary discovery of the genetic basis of cancer, but few new therapies become available.
They story of cancer continues with a moment of optimism, when scientists believe they have cracked the mystery of the malignant cell, and they develop the first targeted therapies. But very quickly, cancer reveals new layers of complexity and a formidable array of defenses.
