Decades ago, a career in cancer research looked entirely different. Back then, scientists sought cutting-edge cures for what they thought was a single disease.
We know now that cancer refers to a group of more than 100 diseases, and scientists have developed innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat each of them. But science does not stand still, and oncology is rife with opportunities for scientists interested in furthering the revolutionary research.
As this field of research evolves, the researcher's purview does, too—and there are plenty of pathways within the profession.
