Elizabeth McKenna: The May issue of Cancer Discovery

Elizabeth McKenna shared on LinkedIn:

“The May issue of Cancer Discovery is now online!

The cover features work by Doug Rubinson, Noritaka Tanaka, Andrew Aguirre, Ryan Corcoran, and colleagues showing that sotorasib is a pan-RAS G12C inhibitor capable of driving clinical response in NRAS G12C cancers.

Also in this issue: a commentary on spatial biology by Cameron Walker and Michael Angelo and a review on AI in oncology by Bill Lotter, Michael Hassett, Nikolaus Schultz, Ken Kehl, Eliezer Van Allen and Ethan Cerami that were inspired by AACR24 plenary sessions, and much more.

Read the issue here.”       .
