As you all my know I work in a cancer research lab. It’s my goal to find a better way to treat cancer. One of the great things about working at Hopkins, is I get the opportunity to hear from leaders in the field talk about their work. This past week was one of those opportunities. There was a book published a while back about cancer and its history called the Emperor of All Maladies and it has been on my reading list for a while. Needless to say I haven’t gotten to it yet, but it has moved up on the list.
