About Taking Cancer On, the podcast

In an effort to simplify the science behind Boehringer Ingelheim’s ambition to ‘drug the undruggable’, this podcast draws back the curtain on cancer research and takes a look at its complex inner workings.  Hosted by Sebastian Hermelin (co-founder of the War On Cancer app), each episode welcomes a new expert guest who takes the listener through one of the many stages of cancer research and drug development; from early discovery efforts, through to clinical trials and drug approval.

If you haven’t already, make sure to listen to episode 1 here, with Dr. Darryl McConnell, Senior Vice President and Research Site Head for Boehringer Ingelheim, Austria, who talks about a breakthrough in KRAS research and the very beginnings of cancer research.
