Disrupt, Innovate, Transform: Is it Time Research Tried it Another Way?
are research results becoming increasingly irreproducible, less meaningful, and
unaffordable? Is this the consequence of playing it safe, rewarding the status
quo and being satisfied with incremental progress? What if we committed to disruptive approaches
that took bold risks and used innovation to upend the status quo. Would we get different results?

Sciences and Oncology Centers—What are we learning?
has resulted from an innovative network of trans-disciplinary centers that
integrate the physical and biological sciences to better understand cancer
across scales? The premise was that the
synergy of large scale and individual initiated research, precompetitive
research, and public databases across disciplines would more effectively
detect, prevent and treat cancer. Are
they fulfilling the promise?
Speakers: Paul Davies, PhD, Dennis Wirtz, PhD

Special Report: Targeting Drug-Resistant Metaplastic Cancers
Metaplastic breast tumors are the most metastatic tumors diagnosed and are resistant to all know therapeutics. Recent work has provided insights into the composition and character of metaplastic breast tumores and, most importantly, potential leads in therapeutic approaches. This work has the potential to provide novel insights into the generation of the lethal behaviors that fuel breast cancer deaths.
