Irene Newsham lives with breast cancer almost daily. And that's not just because she's successfully fought the disease as a patient.

As an assistant professor in the Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine, Irene is working tirelessly alongside the center's director, Dr. Richard Gibbs, and her other colleagues to find more effective treatments and possibly even a cure for this deadly disease.

In the third (and final) video in CultureMap's editorial series highlighting Houston's fight to cure breast cancer, Newsham talks about the science of surviving as a patient and researcher.

This video series was commissioned by the Lester and Sue Smith Foundation on behalf of the Pink Well Challenge.
