Video: Transforming Cancer Therapy With Personalized Medicine

Our goal is to transform cancer therapy by matching patients with the best drug for their particular tumor. Personalized therapy is here, but we need help from our donors to keep advancing the field and getting these cutting-edge drugs to patients as rapidly as possible. This video — which features Moores Cancer Center leaders Scott Lippman, MD, Barbara Parker, MD, and Razelle Kurzrock, MD, as well as patients and philanthropists — was first broadcast at the 2013 Moores Cancer Center gala.
