Tracking breast cancer method of detection shows impact of screening
Standardized identification of the initial method of detection of breast cancer is feasible across different practice sites, according to a study published March 11 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology. The study results could offer important data about the impact of screening in the U.S., wrote a team led by Sujata Ghate, MD, of Duke University in Durham, NC. "Prospective collection of method of detection data may help determine how screening mammography and supplemental screening options (ultrasound, MRI) contribute to reduction of mortality and morbidity from breast cancers," the group noted.

Biden ’s lean science budget could mean tough choices for agencies
President Joe Biden today sent the U.S. Congress a $7.3 trillion spending blueprint that includes his priorities for research . But in an era of flat budgets, being on the White House’s priority list—which ranges from promoting the ethical use of artificial intelligence to finding a cure for cancer—may not mean getting more money. That’s the hard reality facing U.S. scientists as they pore over Biden’s budget request for the 2025 fiscal year, which begins on 1 October. With the slice of the U.S. budget that funds domestic research essentially capped under an earlier budget agreement with Republica...

‘I’m never going to be Tony’: Jeanne Marrazzo, Anthony Fauci’s successor, vows a new direction at NIAID
When Jeanne Marrazzo started her residency at the Yale New Haven Hospital in 1988, the world was a very different place. Marrazzo provided care for dying AIDS patients—mainly gay men and intravenous drug users and their sexual partners. “Stigma was alive and well and thriving, and in fact, really, really ugly at the time,” Marrazzo told an audience of young scientists on 3 March in Denver, just before the start of an HIV/AIDS conference. “You really sometimes had to work hard to get your patients what you needed. That made me interested in political and scientific advocacy and activism very early on.” At th...
