Neil Canavan joins guest host Linda House to talk about his new book “A Cure Within: Scientists Unleashing the Immune System to Kill Cancer” and shed some light on the history of immunotherapy and the scientists who have persisted in order to turn what was once a scientific hypothesis into reality. Based entirely on interviews with the investigators, this book is the story of the immuno-oncology pioneers. It's a story of failure, resurrection, and success. It's a story about science, it's a story about discovery, and intuition, and cunning. It's a peek into the lives and thoughts of some of the most gifted medical scientists on the planet.
