For the past 11 years I have studied cancer in one way or another.  I performed my Ph.D. research on the DNA repair mechanism Base Excision Repair.  I then performed research on Homologous Recombination, targeted radiopharmaceuticals and metastatic breast cancer (all were separate projects, not combined).  I understand cancer at the molecular level.  I marvel at how complex it appears and yet am still hopeful that a cure can be found for each different type relatively soon.
