Eva Vertes Looks to the Future of Medicine

Just 19 years old, Vertes discusses her passion for science and her recent research on cancer. In reading extensively about cancer, she noticed that cancer never (or very rarely) occurs in skeletal muscles such as the heart. She hypothesizes that not only are there elements of these muscles that could help in future cancer therapies, but also believes that cancer cells might actually be able to assist in treating other diseases such as Alzheimer’s in the future.
