Program Description
What is cancer? Can it be cured? How do politics and funding impact research? And what does future treatment hold? Two leading American cancer physicians, Dr. Siddhartha Mikherjee of Columbia University, and Dr. David Scadden of Harvard, explore these topics in Great Conversations #402. As a young researcher and physician, Mukherjee became fascinated with the idea that viruses could cause cancer. It would change the course of his career, leading him to the forefront of the development of cancer drugs. His 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, began as a journal of his work in the laboratory and with patients. When Mukherjee discusses the book, the nature and history of cancer and cancer treatments, and the future of treatment with Scadden, the result is a compelling, passionate and eloquent examination of one of the greatest medical challenges of human history. The conversation was recorded live at the University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum.
