Matthew Perez's First Post

Hi my name is Matthew Perez! I am a sophomore biology major public health minor. I am interested in this course because of the multiple family members diagnosed with cancer. I am very interested in the way in which clinical trials are advancing the diagnosis and mainly the treatment of cancer. We see childhood cancer becoming more and more prevalent. It will be interesting to see what new technologies come about to help mitigate this. 

This graph helps us to see the different types of cancer and the survival rates in children.

This article more deeply explains childhood cancer survival rates.
