During a recent visit to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, physician-scientist and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee sat down with Hutch President and Director Dr. Gary Gilliland to talk about the recent strides in cancer research and care. They also discussed how scientists should communicate the excitement — and caveats — of that progress, which Mukherjee plans to chronicle in new chapters for a 10th anniversary edition of his bestselling book, "The Emperor of All Maladies."

Right now, Mukherjee said, cancer researchers “are grappling with some of the most interesting ideas of our times.”

Watch as Mukherjee shares his thoughts on keeping “the spark alive” for scientists just starting their careers and the need to integrate big data with bench science to make meaningful advances for patients.
