Siemens Sponsors PBS Cancer Documentary
Ken Burns presents “Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies,” a film by Barak Goodman

Siemens is a proud supporter "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies,” a documentary which aired in the Spring of 2015 on PBS stations nationwide.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee, the six-hour, three-part film chronicles the 4,000-year effort to understand, treat and ultimately cure cancer. It weaves together three different stories: a historical documentary, a film that focuses on current patients, and a scientific and investigative report on the quest for a cure.

 

Siemens’ investment in this production was synergistic with our mission of innovating to advance human health. Since the late 1890s, Siemens has been delivering tools for physicians and researchers on the forefront of cancer research. Today, we continue to pioneer technologies across the spectrum of cancer care -- from prevention and screening to diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.

 

Each episode of the documentary is available to steam online.
