  • Overview

    A new program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston includes extracting the DNA from its cancer patients’ tumors to determine which abnormalities occur in the tumor cells, specific to the type of tumor. From these results, physicians hope to create better, targeted cancer therapies. Host Dr. Lee Freedman asks Dr. Leif Ellisen, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, about the details of this program. Will genetic tumor profiling be conducted at many more cancer centers in the near future?
