Non-Medical Article of the Week
Finding the right job can be like navigating a maze, especially in a specialized field like gynecologic oncology. But this isn't just about the title or the field – it's about finding a place where you can truly shine. Dive into this article, and you'll discover a simple yet powerful idea: the best job is the one where you're your best self. We all deserve a place where we're supported by our colleagues, free from discrimination, confident in our job security, and equipped to handle changes. Finally, loving what you do on a day-to-day basis, rather than just being enamored with the big picture, makes all the difference. If you don't love the daily grind, it's unlikely you will be happy.
Question of the Week

B) They produce more neoantigens, making them more recognizable by the immune system.
C) They increase the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, making the tumor environment more hostile.
D) They stimulate higher expression of MHC class I molecules, leading to increased immune cell infiltration.
