Translational Cancer Research Symposium

Location: Biotech Building

This symposium is being organized jointly by the Cornell Center on the Microenvironment &
Metastasis (CMM), The Comparative Cancer Biology Training Program at the College of Veterinary Medicine(Cornell), Weill Cornell Cancer Center and the Methodist Cancer Center, Houston, Texas. The focus on translational science highlights our common goal of using knowledge of basic mechanisms and innovative engineering approaches to improve cancer diagnosis and therapy, in many cases with advanced cell culture systems and animal models as essential intermediates. Two major themes of the symposium will be 'Imaging & Diagnostics' and 'Molecular Mechanisms & Therapeutics'.

Keynote Speaker:

David R. Piwnica-Worms, M.D., Ph.D.
Director of the Bright Institute and Molecular Imaging Center
