George Negus Tonight - Professor Suzanne Cory
Professor Cory is up there with the best in the world in her profession - molecular biomedical research. Some people may wonder "What is molecular biomedical research?" Not a bad question.
Basically, molecular biomedical researchers try to find out how genes, the building blocks of life, as they keep telling us, really work. With her husband, a fellow scientist, and their dedicated team, Suzanne has been working on the big one - how some genes cause cancer. And their hope, of course, is that the treatments they're developing might one day lead to the ultimate cancer breakthrough.
