Day 80: The Drugs Don’t Work, The Verve
This song first came out when I was still working at Manchester University. Years later, I would attempt to play my part in developing science which could help optimise chemotherapy by testing cancer samples using High Content Screening. Sadly it is very hard to the change the paradigm that underlies modern cancer treatment, yet hopefully one day ….
This song by the Verve is so hauntingly beautiful as it captures the tragedy of chemotherapy which fails to help the patient.
