Billions of people living since the ancient times have succumbed to cancer. Many people throughout history feared to contact the disease, because of its high fatality rate and because there is no cure for it. Our ancestors have limited resources, and fighting the disease is very difficult for them. However, humans did not surrender and did their best to search for the cure for cancer. As the technology advances, more findings are being discovered that would soon lead to the eradication of the disease. One of the most helpful ways on how scientists are fighting the disease is through sharing information with their peers online. Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov, oncologists at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, created an online scientific journal that can be used by scientists wherever they are. Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov also serve as the editors in chief of the online scientific journal, and they are the ones responsible for publishing an article that they think would best suit the motif of the website. The two called it Oncotarget, and it went live in 2010. Oncotarget publishes two articles per week, and they are now the most popular pages for scientists and doctors who are looking for a scientific journal that can support their studies.

What Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov do is inviting their fellow scientists around the world to share some information they know about the disease. Because of its peer sharing nature, scientists find it easy to type what their discoveries are and uploading it instantly online. Some of the most significant findings that were published in Oncotarget would be the journey to find the cure for the disease, the information that rapamycin can cure aging, methods, and techniques on how to eradicate cancer, and so much more.
