September 16, 2016


The cancer moonshot’s dual focus for pediatrics should be improving outcomes in childhood cancers with low cure rates and alleviating the late effects of treatment, Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s President David A. Williams, MD, and other experts tell US News.

"The gist of the Moonshot in pediatrics in particular is to address the currently unmet need of cancers we're not curing," David Williams tells US News, calling out those brain tumors and blood cancers whose cure rates have been difficult to boost.
