    This is huge news. A scientist and co-founder of BioNTech, Ozlem Tureci, says that the same tech used in the new mRNA vaccines for the virus might be able to be used on cancer patients in as soon as a couple of years.

    A cancer vaccine? The thought never even occurred to me.

    This is super cool. It's definitely a way that I would have never thought about approaching it. Hopefully they pull it off.

    How is this not front page headline news? It's great to knock out a novel virus don't get me wrong. But cancer? The potential to vaccinate against that is far more impactful to the human race and would save so many lives it would be hard to calculate. I know its only a potential, it's unproven and years away but still. Everyone in science that's related to this field needs to be spending most of their time on this right now.
