Summary
In 1971, President Nixon declared war on cancer, envisioning a cure within five years. What mechanisms-financial, political, and medical-did his announcement set in motion? Are we any closer to winning the war? This program takes on those questions, examining milestones in cancer research and studying forces outside the scientific world that have driven or hindered anti-cancer efforts. Interviews with renowned medical pioneers-including Dr. Steven Rosenberg of the National Cancer Institute, Prof. Samuel Epstein of the University of Illinois School of Health, and Dominique Stehelin, the scientist who paved the way for gene therapy-provide in-depth analysis
