Starving cancer cells without starving YOU

This week's guest is Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, a physician, researcher, and Pulitzer Prize winner. Dr. Mukherjee and Dr. Juneja talk about a new approach to fighting cancer, by analyzing the internal metabolism of the cancer cell so that we can prevent cancer growth by starving it. Dr. Mukherjee shares his learnings on how specific diets - targeting amino acids and other nutrients - in combination with other therapies, can help patients control their cancer.

GammaTile Therapy - A new way to fight brain cancer

Dr. Juneja talks with Dr. McCracken, Neurosurgical Oncologist at Piedmont Atlanta Brain Tumor Center, about brain cancer. Can meningiomas be cancerous? Why makes it Glioblastoma so challenging to treat? Dr. McCracken shares some insights on tumor resection and the techniques used to achieve functional preservation. Learn about GammaTile to precisely deliver radiation and how it can dramatically improve the treatment of GBM in comparison with external beam radiation.

Train our Immune System to Kill Cancer and Prevent Recurrence

Our guest this week is Dr. Ian Walters, CEO of Portage Biotech. Dr. Juneja talks with Dr. Walters to explain how we can potentially educate our own immune system to kill cancer cells and then retain that education to prevent future recurrences. And what if we could create a drug to impact multiple cancers - via existing checkpoint inhibitors or pathways? Watch this episode to find out about the science that is being developed right now.
