Surgeon Ryan Fields, MD, says the work being funded now through events like the illumination Gala will lead to novel treatments that are only dreamed about now. For Fields, researching new treatments for cancer has a personal tie. A roommate of his during medical school died at a young age of colon cancer. He says he takes that experience with him as he treats patients and looks for new and better ways to treat each patient individually. In this video, Fields talks about the advances in genetics and immunology and what that means for personalized cancer care.
