Cancer innovation

2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the National Cancer Act of 1971 — legislation that intended to end the "war on cancer" by expanding funding and authorities to the National Cancer Institute. Half a century since the act was signed into law, NCI and the biomedical research community have made leaps and bounds in cancer research, clinical trials, diagnostics and treatment. As NCI and the country continue to fight the war on cancer today, GovernmentCIO Media & Research is collaborating with the institute to bring you a HealthCast miniseries to commemorate the National Cancer Act's impact.
