Arul M. Chinnaiyan, MD, PhD, Director, Michigan Center for Translational Pathology, and S.P. Hicks Endowed Professor of Pathology; was among the group of distinguished cancer scientists called to Washington DC to give advice on how research can help bring to reality Vice President Biden's hope for a "Moon Shot Vision to cure cancer." VP Biden said:
 
"I believe we need a moon shot in this country to cure cancer. It’s personal. But I know we can do this. The president and I have already been working hard on increasing funding for research and development because there are so many breakthroughs just on the horizon in science and medicine, the things that are just about to happen, and we can make them real, with an absolute national commitment to end cancer as we know it today. And I’m going to spend the next 15 months in this office pushing as hard as I can to accomplish this, because I know there are Democrats and Republicans on the Hill who share our passion—our passion to silence this deadly disease."
