Listen to cytogenetics and genomics expert Dr. Rafael Fonseca, MD of the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale share the latest in his myeloma research and his open clinical trials.
On the Wednesday, July 24th, 2013 broadcast at 2PM Pacific/5PM Eastern our special guest is entrepreneur, social media thought leader and Forbes Contributor Dan Munro aka @danmunro.
Dan recently penned a piece for Forbes titled: 'Big Government Opens Big Database For Cancer Research'
This catchy headline caught my attention since part of our mission at This Week In Oncology is to eliminate the esoterica from 'oncology-speak' and to present the significance of the discoveries, trends and developments in the cancer care and diagnostics in plain english for more general consumption.
Much progress has been realized in oncology of late with a fair amount of the promisesd upside of 'personalized [or individualized] medicine' often pointing to better outcomes via more targeted treatment of specific tumors based on their unique genetic signature.
So called 'big data' is in the news as ubiquitous technology, connectivity, the declining costs of massive data dragnets and disease specific mashups affords insights previously inaccessible to reseachers, clinicians and others interested in the diagnosis and/or treatment of oncology.
We'll get Dan's takes on his piece and see how he sees the confluence of these trends coming together for the benefits of patients.

The answer is not in finding better doctors or better drugs, or even better treatment facilities. The best answer is prevention. What if you do not even experience a disease in the first place? Let's Contrast Pasteur with Vincent. Two great scientists from the past. One believed that health was out of your control and that germs were responsible. The other believed in biological terrain, or the health of you internal "terrain". Who was right? &nb
Max McCoy speaks with Joyce about his recent personal adventure, exploring the depths of his own genome. It's an ongoing adventure worthy of some of his fictional heroes -- unexpected twists and turns, sometimes more information than you know what to do with, and often more questions than answers are unearthed.
