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.
