The family of Joseph “Beau” Biden III, son of Vice President Joe Biden, has not yet revealed the specific type of brain cancer that killed the 46-year-old father and Iraq veteran on Saturday. Nearly 14,000 people die annually from brain cancer, but researchers at Fred Hutch are trying to change that.
Recent notable accomplishments: HIDRA-based self-service analytical tool Argos launched; Dr. Derek Stirewalt and colleagues examine two of the most common genetic abnormalities in AML that are widely used as prognostic biomarkers
