Are We Curing Cancer Yet?

Video   May 28, 2019 | Taken from TEDx Talks, YouTube


The war against cancer has been waging for decades, and yet we have not centered on a clearly-defined cure. To understand how we can cure cancer, first we must understand that not all cancers are the same and not every cancer manifests the same way in different people. Precision medicine and precision health are providing new tools for curing cancer.

Dr Li Jingmei is a Senior Research Scientist at the Genome Institute of Singapore. As an aspiring woman in Science doing Science for women, her work aims to improve women’s health, particularly in the area of breast cancer research.
