Cancer and Addiction in the Year 2050

Abstract:
UNC researchers hope that by 2050, genetic analysis will help family doctors predict which people will inherit genetic mutations or predispositions to cancer. Genetic research might also show how patients will react to chemotherapy or medication so that doses can be better regulated, and may speed the testing of new targeted therapies and novel means of early detection.
