Question: What would you get if you brought together 10,000 scientists, clinical and support staffers?

Answer: A new global hub for cancer research in London.

Its aim? To deliver at least two new drugs every five years.

The center, plans for which were announced this week, is expected to create 13,000 new jobs through a partnership of the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, the council of the London borough of Sutton and the Greater London Authority.

Organizers are hoping the center will be "the world's leading cancer research campus," according to Professor Paul Workman, chief executive of the ICR.

What's new in research and cancer care, in the United States and throughout the world, can be found in a book titled "Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner's breast cancer," that I, Woody Weingarten, have aimed at male caregivers.
