Biophysics fights cancer
Whether it focuses on determining why certain cancers develop drug resistance, finding a way to improve individual's immune systems or better understanding cancer cell evolution, fundamental scientific research will 'stand up to cancer' with three new awards from the National Science Foundation. The awards arose through an innovative public-private partnership between NSF, Stand Up To Cancer, the V Foundation for Cancer Research, The Lustgarten Foundation, Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Bristol-Myers Squibb.
