Dr. Ashani Weeraratna on “Is Cancer Inevitable? “
Today, I speak with Dr. Ashani Weeraratna. She’s a leading cancer researcher at Johns Hopkins. Ashani was recently appointed by President Biden to the National Cancer Advisory Board. She’s also a researcher at the National Cancer Institute AND the author of a new book called Is Cancer Inevitable? Her book takes us inside her research lab and reveals how new insights are leading to major breakthroughs, even for patients with Stage IV cancer. We talk about those breakthroughs, what it was like growing up in South Africa, and seeing Van Gogh in virtual reality, among other things.
