The 19th Dr. John Rae Lecture Engineering the Fight Against Cancer

By Jonathan Bramson

Image of Dr. Jonathan Bramson in his research lab. White blood cells can do more than simply fight infections, they can also fight cancers. Unfortu­nate­ly, white blood cells in cancer patients lose their ability to fight.
 
Their fighting spirit can be restored, however, through engineering. Dr. Bramson discusses the promise of this new technology and the first FDA-approved white blood cell drugs for leukemias.

Dr. Jonathan Bramson is Vice-Dean of Research for the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University.

With financial assistance from The Canada Council for the Arts through The Writers' Union of Canada.
