International collaboration, data sharing and investing in research is how we’ll tame the COVID-19 virus, explains Cancer World editor Adriana Albini. An immunologist now on the Board of Directors of the American Association of Cancer Research, Albini was part of the huge and successful international research effort to tame the HIV epidemic in the 1990s.
