Science Life is a guide to the changing world of biomedicine, as seen from our home at the University of Chicago Medicine. We’re interested in clinical and theoretical advances – from new kinds of cancer treatments to new ideas about how life evolved. Patients can visit this blog to ask questions or offer their own insights into diseases and therapies. Doctors and scholars can trade ideas about the latest studies or controversies. And anyone curious about the life sciences can join us in figuring out what this fascinating field means for our everyday lives.
