SCIENCE STUDIO: Targeted Cancer Therapy

  Keith talks with Robert Kirken, Dean of the UTEP College of Science; and Benjamin Carcamo, pediatric oncologist at El Paso Children's Hospital.    They talk about their collaboration in exploring targeted therapies when traditional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation, have failed for patients.  They also offer an example of a child with a deadly brain tumor who now has hope for survival thanks to this type of treatment.
