Also, Collins recently wrote an article in Parade magazine discussing recent work in cancer, particularly focusing on gene mutations linked to cancers, new treatments for cancers, and the Cancer Genome Project. "I admit that these dramatic advances can't be applied to every case of cancer, yet they show the direction in which cancer research and treatment are going," Collins writes. "Researchers can envision a time in which every type of genetic alteration that causes cancer will be known."
