Conceptual depiction of red blood cells interspersed with DNA double helices and flags representing DNA methylation. DNA methylation is a chemical modification of DNA called methylation, which can control the expression of genes like a dimmer on a light switch. The image also includes a test tube of blood because researchers hope this finding will spur development of a blood test that can be used to diagnose a variety of cancers at early stages.

The Man Who Would Tame Cancer--"The Cancer MoonShot 2020 project seeks to exploit the body’s own immune system to fight cancer. I’m not saying we’re going to cure cancer by 2020, but maybe we’ll be able to activate the body’s T cells to fight it. We've treated metastatic colon cancer patients who've failed every line of chemotherapy..all they got is  one antibody as an injection. 30% are alive today.
