In the age of genomic discovery, there have been exponential advances in molecular science and development of targeted therapies, but government support of medical research (particularly funding to the National Cancer Institute) has decreased significantly over time. With the pharmaceutical industry in the driver's seat for research, what does this portend for progress in the war on cancer?
