From approval of the first cancer immunotherapy for lung cancer, to research showing less is more when it comes to treatment for early-stage breast cancer, to the launch of the innovative, international data sharing project AACR Project Genie, to a campaign that led to an historic increase in funding for the National Institutes of Health, the American Association for Cancer Research’s blog, Cancer Research Catalyst, has chronicled it all.
