Biodesign Institute researcher and Mayo Clinic oncologist Dr. Karen Anderson was recently featured on "BCRF Conversations," the official podcast of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Anderson has had a long interest in breast cancer vaccine development, with a long-range goal to deliver vaccines to reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence after surgery.

Her research focuses on how the immune system can be harnessed to detect and alter cancer development. 

In the podcast, she discovered a wide range of topics, including translational research, the promise of immune therapies to cancer, and how exploring both tumor diversity and a patient's unique immune response may the keys in trying to help eliminate cancer.
