Survivors of pediatric cancer and studying their long-term health from Radiation Oncology at UCSF on Vimeo.

 
Interview with Dr. Jean Nakamura by PBS in 2014. Thanks to better treatments, more people are surviving cancer. But those treatments come with a downside: Survivors, especially those who got sick as children, are at greater risk for other significant health issues later.

Breast cancer affects close to 280,000 women a year. Dr. Mekhail Anwar and his collaborator Dr. Catherine Park, with the help of others, are redefining the lasting results of a lumpectomy. Identifying and locating residual cancer cells, immediately after removing a tumor mass, is the key element in minimizing recurrence and limiting the need for a second surgery. With their combined backgrounds in sensor technology, biomarkers, and oncology, this team has made promising strides in developing a detection system that would allow real-time detection of residual cancer cells during breast conserving surgeries.
