Dr. Ho I hardly sleep. I am driven. We will cure cancer.
“Now is not the time for incremental science. Now is the time to ask really big questions and make big strides. I believe we can conquer cancer. It’s a question of ‘how,’ not ‘if.’”
Using sophisticated technologies, Dr. Ho looks for ways to predict cancers before they occur. Her patent-pending urine marker for early diagnosis and recurrence of prostate cancer is in clinical trials right now. A prolific scientist and passionate researcher, Dr. Ho explains that if we know a person has a higher risk to get cancer, we can prescribe changes in behaviors, environment, and even medication to prevent the disease from occurring. “Someday,” she says, “we will be able to customize medicine for every individual.”
