Midsummer Nights' Science: Exploring the genome’s "dark matter": What the frontiers of genomic research are revealing about cancer

In the second 2013 installment of the Broad Institute’s Midsummer Nights’ Science, medical oncologist and Broad Institute senior associate member Levi Garraway offers an overview of how those in the field are thinking about cancer, and how an understanding of cancer’s underpinnings can be used to improve biological knowledge and develop rational therapies for treating patients. Garraway discusses how genomic research is helping to reveal some of cancer's long-held secrets, showing examples from his team’s research on skin cancer, prostate cancer, head and neck cancer, and more.
