Nearly one out of three people in the United States will have cancer during their lifetimes, according to the American Cancer Society.

While a cure remains at large, innovative treatments like immunotherapies, stem cell replacement and gene therapy are advancing quickly.  Screening tests are also playing a role in catching cancer early, so doctors can apply aggressive treatment to send cancer into remission.    

Among those working to change the story on cancer are researchers from the Petit Institute of Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech, three of whom are featured in a story from the College of Engineering.
