What if we could track where the cancer is moving through the body, not by evasive biopsies, but rather through a common procedure we go through nearly anytime we visit a doctor. A simple blood draw. That's just one of the innovations I discussed with Dr. Peter Kuhn. It was a terrific conversation. Dr. Kuhn is not your typical researcher, part scientist. Kuhn's a physicist by training and part entrepreneur. That mix of disciplines comes across in how he thinks and how he approaches his work. It clearly drives his unique approach to helping find a breast cancer cure, not to mention the 16 patents that have been filed as a result of his research. Some background. Dr. Kuhn is the Dean's Professor of Biological Sciences and Professor of Medicine and Engineering, as well as a founding member of the Michelson Center for Convergent Bio-sciences at USC. He's a founding member of a new institute of convergent sciences and Director of the Southern California Physics Oncology Center. Dr. Kuhn has been a BCRF investigator since 2013. Dr. Kuhn's research is shedding new light on how cancer spreads through the body and evolves over time. This new science should lead to a personalized care strategy that is biologically informed and clinically actionable. Before my conversation with Dr. Kuhn though, one last item. An ask from me to you. I hope you like these Investigating Breast Cancer conversations and if so, I'd appreciate if you'd take a moment, go to I tunes and if you're so moved, leave a five star review. The ratings really matter. They go a long way to helping other people find the podcast. Thanks for considering.
