When the US trade embargo left Cuba isolated from medical resources, Cuban scientists were forced to get creative. Now they have developed lung cancer vaccines that show so much promise, some Americans are defying the embargo and traveling to Cuba for treatment. In an unprecedented move, Cuban researchers are working with U.S. partners to make the medicines more widely available. Producers: Laurie Cahalane, Melanie Wallace, Kelly Thomson
