Bladder cancer: the ninth most common cancer worldwide, with nearly half a million new cases diagnosed each year. Unfortunately, less than three-quarters of those receiving a diagnosis will survive five years, and only about half can expect a decade. Why have those survival rates not significantly improved over time? The disease’s heterogeneity may be at least partly to blame, which is why Jun Zhu, Professor of Genetics and Genomic Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine, opted to investigate a particular subtype of bladder cancer known as p53-like bladder cancer.
