Science: Out of the Box


Why is cancer so hard to treat—and what new strategies are researchers considering? What do cells do when their DNA gets tangled up? How do brain cells build connections to each other? Our researchers use toys to help answer these and other questions in the video series Science: Out of the Box.   Immunotherapy and Antibodies | Slaying Lung Cancer Medical oncologist Julie Brahmer, M.D., explains how immunotherapy works as a tool in treating lung cancer. Using toys and finger paints, she demonstrates how the immune system attacks cancer cells. Dr. Brahmer discusses why immunotherapy is a promising new treatment […]
