10 ways tech is improving cancer research

10 ways tech is improving cancer research

A Techrepublic article has just highlighted some exciting technological developments, with the following probably more relevant to CLL than the other items, which are more relevant to solid tumours:

1. Microsoft Project Hanover: Maximizing research

2. NASA: Using space technology to find cancer markers

4. IBM Watson: Analyzing research and developing treatment

5. CRISPR: Inactivating cancer mutations

9. Gene editing: Engineering immune cells

10. CIVO: Testing drug impacts

Article: techrepublic.com/article/10...

The good thing about a chronic cancer such as CLL is that we should personally be able to benefit from some of these initiatives!

Excellent article. We believe that the blue sky thinking that people working in tech take will make a difference to Cancer research. Thanks for posting.


Here's hoping something like the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative can contribute a unifying presence of the best and the brightest in science and technology to address the problems and solutions of so many diversified efforts.

I'm not sure - although sincere and motivated - VP Joe Biden is the best choice for this task.

Love your photography.
