The Center of Cancer Systems Biology Evening Lecture Series—Bringing Science to the Public: “Brain Tumors: Challenges to Finding a Cure”, October 30

Brain tumors affect more than 600,000 people in the United States and are the most common solid tumor in children. Unfortunately, brain tumors continue to thwart many therapeutic approaches. Please join us Tuesday, October 30 at 7 p.m. in St. Elizabeth’s Seton Auditorium for "Brain Tumors: Challenges to Finding a Cure" presented by Dr. David Hurwitz, Chief Scientific Officer of the National Brain Tumor Society.

Dr. Hurwitz will speak about current challenges facing the research and treatment of brain tumors. The ultimate goal of the National Brain Tumor Society is to find a cure for people living with brain tumors, but until that time, the NBTS is committed to finding better treatments by integrating research and public policy.

This lecture is part of the ‘Bringing Science to the Public’ evening lecture series, hosted by the Center of Cancer Systems Biology, Steward Research & Specialty Projects Corp., at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. The lecture is free and open to the public.  Visit http://cancer-systems-biology.org for details.
