This episode takes a frank look at Glioblastoma, an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord. Chances are you have heard of it because of media coverage of Beau Biden (the son of Vice President Joe Biden) and Senator John McCain’s experiences facing this diagnosis. Our two guests will help us understand the many challenges and also shed light on new treatments and approaches that are being used to treat this complex disease. This episode features Dr. Patrick Wen of Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Jennifer Serventi of the University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer Institute.
