New Orleans—"When I teach cancer pharmacology to second-year medical students, I always put a blowtorch on the table and say, ‘There's no cancer I can't kill,'" said Barton Kamen, MD, PhD, professor of pediatrics at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, New Brunswick. "I'm not trying to be trivial," he said, "but I want to make the point that we don't treat cancer, we treat kids and we always worry about what we're doing."
