Distinguished Lecture Series
Sylvester’s Distinguished Guest Lecture Series provides a forum for outstanding clinical and translational researcher guest lecturers to interact and ultimately collaborate with Sylvester faculty. The focus of the series is to bring basic science and clinical researchers together to discuss recent advances in the understanding and treatment of human cancer – a realization of the “bench to bedside” ideal. The audience is typically a mix of clinicians, clinical researchers, basic scientists, and physician scientists.
Please join us on Friday, May 23, 2014 as Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center hosts the 15th Annual Zubrod Memorial Lecture and Cancer Research Poster Session in honor of its founding director, Charles Gordon Zubrod, M.D. The event will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Jackson Health System Diagnostic Treatment Center, second-floor conference center.
Kenneth C. Anderson, M.D., Kraft Family Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Director, Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center and LeBow Institute for Myeloma Therapeutics, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Massachusetts will present a lecture entitled “New Insights into Therapeutic Targets in Multiple Myeloma”. Dr. Anderson has focused his laboratory and clinical research studies on multiple myeloma. He has developed laboratory and animal models of the tumor in it is microenvironment which have allowed for both identification of novel targets and validation of novel targeted therapies, and has then rapidly translated these studies to clinical trials culminating in FDA approval of novel targeted therapies.
