The National Cancer Moonshot Initiative, announced by President Obama in January, is gaining momentum. “We are at an inflection point, and the science is ready for the concerted new effort this initiative will deliver. Cancer is now known to be hundreds of diseases, each with unique features, driving forces, and vulnerabilities to treatments — and scientific understanding of how cancer develops and spreads has improved our ability to intervene and attack it”, President Obama stated in his 2016 State of the Union Address. You can access more information about the initiative and the initial announcement here.
At the upcoming ASCO meeting, on June 6 in Chicago, Vice-President Joe Biden will provide the professional cancer community an update to this Moonshot Initiative.
