Exciting news on cancer. The moonshot project is working on a vaccine for breast cancer and hopefully it will move into vaccines for other cancers. More about the moonshot project.
Today, that community is building on the Cancer Moonshot’s momentum, to deliver on even bolder goals: to reduce the cancer death rate by half within 25 years and improve the lives of people with cancer and cancer survivors. This next phase of the Cancer Moonshot, kickstarted in 2022 by President Biden with new goals, emphasizes the role that Americans themselves can play in this effort—by getting back to cancer screenings missed during the pandemic, quitting smoking, and even participating in research—and how agencies across the federal government can work together to further support these goals.
