Description

Can Technology Lessen the Burden of Cancer?
 
According to the World Health Organization, one in six deaths in the world is due to cancer. In 2018, an estimated 1,735,350 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and more than 600,000 will die from the disease. The national expenditure for cancer care in 2017 were $147.3 billion, and that cost is projected to increase as the population ages. It is no wonder that this year’s Nobel Prize for medicine went to two cancer researchers for discoveries that have revolutionized cancer care.

New technologies continue to emerge at lightning speed, providing empowerment and better disease management for patients and new tools for clinicians, researchers and caregivers. As a tech and research hub, Seattle is becoming a hot bed for research and innovation in cancer therapies, data-driven prevention and management solutions and holistic integrated approaches to patient care. Join experts from KenSci, MoleMapper, SageBionetworks and Seattle Children’s Research Institute to discuss the role technology can play in fighting, treating and living with cancer
