Are We Curing Cancer Yet?

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

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.
