Dr David Malkin is boosting patient survival with screening.

People with a rare genetic condition called Li-Fraumeni syndrome have a high risk of cancer. Dr David Malkin and his team developed a method to catch cancers early in these people, which has been adopted all around the world. People who participate in this screening have dramatically higher cancer survival rates.
