Breast Cancer Science for Non-Scientists

Microsoft Word - CSC_SGKevent_021113

State-of-the-art breast cancer research is happening right now, right here in St. Louis.

We invite you to learn a bit about this research at a free educational event on Monday evening, Feb. 11. Find out how whole-genome sequencing of breast cancer is helping to identify opportunities for precise diagnostics and targeted therapy. It sounds science-y, but this presentation is designed for those of us who aren’t necessarily scientifically savvy.

Komen St. Louis and Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis are hosting the event in collaboration with Washington University researchers and St. Luke’s Hospital. We’re calling it “Updates in Breast Cancer Genomics: The Breast Cancer Landscape.”

Featured speaker Dr. Matthew Ellis, of Washington University and Siteman Cancer Center, is a Komen Promise Grant recipient. He’ll be joined by Dr. Chris Maher of the Genome Institute at Washington University.

Updates in Breast Cancer Genomics: The Breast Cancer Landscape | Monday, Feb. 11 | 6:30-8 pm | St. Luke’s Hospital Emerson Auditorium
