This picture shows a scientist developing a influenza vaccine. Vaccines are used for preventing diseases in the future. If this vaccine is created cases of influenza will rapidly decrease and we may be able to eliminate this virus from the world forever.
As every second passes, diseases are evolving and changing to fit into their environment. In order to keep up with this change scientists have to find amazing ways to stop these diseases. One solution to this will be microchips. These microchips can find, detect and locate diseases when read by microscopes. Since more diseases appear everyday the demand for microchips may get higher. Some lives have already been saved by this device thanks to the work of biochemist Joe DeRisi and various other scientists and doctors.

Cancer is a part of your body that is controlled by abnormal cell growth. Oncologists are doctors that treat this disease. When a team of Oncologists create a plan to treat Cancer they are called a multidisciplinary team. The plan is used to fight cancer by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or a combination of all of them. Chemotherapy is the use of medicines to stop the cancer cells ability to grow or divide. Radiation therapy is the use of high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells. Surgery for cancer involves removing or amputating the tumor and surrounding tissue. These ways of treatment show a simple solution to a complicated disease.
