Cancer care is at a crossroads. Science has identified key genes and proteins that go awry and result in this life-threatening illness, yet major advancements in the treatment of the disease remain rare. That's because many cancers are discovered only after they have spread throughout the body, making them difficult to cure.

Carnegie Mellon alumna Amanda Paulovich (S’88) wants to change this picture. She says the key to improving early detection and treatment is using cancer's molecular footprints.
