What does a Trump presidency mean for oncology research?
On the 20th January, Trump assumed office of the United States of America. 2 months following the election results, high levels of uncertainty still spread across not only the United States but the whole world. What plans did Trump have? Why did he not mention research funding during his campaign? What did Trump’s immigration law changes have in store? Various questions were left floating around the clinical trial industry.  In 2016, it was estimated that approximately 1,685,210 new cases of cancer would be diagnosed, resulting in more than half a million deaths within the States. It was in 1971 that the then U.S. President Richard Nixon signed the National Cancer Act – a major point in our history and our fight against one of the leading causes on premature death. Over the past years, we have seen a massive incline in cancer deaths yet as a global community, we strive to fight back. Will Trump stand in the way of this?
