Last January, the Stand Up To Cancer (ST2C) charitable program announced the “Convergence 2.0” research initiative, which awards $11M to seven highly multidisciplinary teams in the field of cancer research. This research programme brings together life scientists, bioengineers and Microsoft machine learning experts to investigate new cancer therapies. David T. Ting, co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Cancer Convergence, and member of one of these “Convergence” Dream Teams, talks about the significance and potential reach of the programme.
