The Emperor of All Maladies — now on Television


Science announces:

Based on the 2010 book by Siddhartha Mukherjee (Science, 22 April 2011, p. 423), this three-part documentary weaves together a sweeping history of cancer with intimate stories of contemporary patients. Told largely through interviews with researchers and oncologists, the series highlights Sidney Farber’s efforts to galvanize a national “war on cancer” in the 1940s, delves into the development of targeted drug compounds in the late 20th century, and explores the promise of personalized immunotherapies.
