George Johnson discusses "The Cancer Chronicles" in the Grossman Auditorium.

On October 9, 2013, the prolific science writer George Johnson came to The Wistar Institute to discuss his latest book, “The Cancer Chronicles,” as part of the Institute’s ongoing Authors Series. From a tumor in a dinosaur bone to his own personal struggle as his wife faced a diagnosis of a “metastatic tumor with an unknown primary,” Johnson discusses how he approached the subject of cancer for this book and the challenges of describing the disease.

If you missed the opportunity to see George Johnson in person when he came to Philadelphia, we’ve now posted the video of his talk for your viewing pleasure.
