Rates of this blood cancer have jumped more than 125% worldwide since the 1990s. But there's reason to have hope: Today, life expectancy has at least doubled in some cases. That's thanks to increased research, new learnings and innovative advances—and Johnson & Johnson is at the forefront of this crucial work.
The Johnson & Johnson WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program winners have big ideas—and an even bigger drive to inspire other women studying science, technology, engineering, math, manufacturing and design to pursue their dreams, too.
For National Cancer Prevention Month, we’re spotlighting three leading Johnson & Johnson female hematologists—innovators who are not only saving lives and advancing new treatments but also paving the way for the next generation of women in their field.
Algorithms, artificial intelligence, machine learning and other technologies are transforming the way physicians identify, treat and manage diseases. Here’s how Johnson & Johnson is putting the latest tools to work.
That's exactly what researchers at Johnson & Johnson are trying to find out. By partnering on a new study that's looking at the role gut microbes may play in the disease—and focusing on the underrepresented groups most affected—they hope to advance early-detection strategies and potential treatments.
Hidden in large amounts of digital information—such as anonymized medical records—may be the keys to transforming the future of healthcare. Troy C. Sarich, Ph.D., Johnson & Johnson's Chief Commercial Data Science Officer, shares how the company is carefully collecting, analyzing and harnessing this information to improve the health of people everywhere.
Artificial intelligence-enabled mobile screening units. Nasal swab genomic tests. Diagnostics that pair the right treatment with the right patient. For National Cancer Prevention Month, Johnson & Johnson researchers share the progress that's being made to thwart the #1 cancer killer.
Certain gene mutations can dramatically increase the risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer. That's why Johnson & Johnson is researching a new way to fight the disease—one that involves blocking cancer cells from repairing their own damaged DNA.
Most people know about side effects, like hair loss, that can accompany cancer treatment. But chemotherapy can also impact your skin. Oncodermatologists and Johnson & Johnson scientists looked into how to care for such skin—leading to a new science-backed line of cleansers, moisturizers and balms designed with cancer patients in mind.
In addition to its own cadre of scientists hard at work fighting the pandemic, Johnson & Johnson also supports external researchers and entrepreneurs equally dedicated to finding solutions for the current health crisis. We take a look at some of this groundbreaking work happening across the globe—from San Francisco to Seoul.
When you're the CFO of a company, you have a holistic view of how a pandemic can touch every aspect of a business, especially when it's a healthcare company. So we posed inquiring mind questions to Joe Wolk about what the past eight months have been like for him at the financial helm of the company—via a Zoom interview.
Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D., made his name as an oncologist, researcher and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. Now he's the scientific adviser of an immuno-oncology start-up that's tackling a rare form of leukemia. In an exclusive interview, he reveals his vision for the future of cancer treatments.
