Cancer-killing viruses featured by VICE on HBO, an international documentary show

March 11, 2015

Dr. John Bell's work as a pioneer and leader in the discovery and development of cancer-killing viruses was featured last week in a full episode of VICE on HBO. Broadcast in Canada and the United States, "VICE Special Report: Killing Cancer" uses compelling patient stories from clinical trials in the United States to explore the promise of oncolytic viruses, balancing this hope against the cautions of the unknown. You can view the full episode online until March 27.
