The School of Medicine invites you to a lecture by Joe Gray, Ph.D., Gordon Moore professor and chair of Biomedical Engineering; director of the OHSU Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine; and associate director for translational research at the Knight Cancer Institute. The lecture, “Genomics and Beyond – a Rationale for Spatial Systems Biomedicine,” will take place Thursday, April 21 at 5 p.m. in the OHSU Auditorium.
Dr. Gray, a physicist and an engineer, is one of the most highly regarded scientists in the field of cancer research. He is known for breakthroughs that have changed clinical practices for cancer patients including aspects of flow cytometry, a technique for counting and examining microscopic particles, such as cells and chromosomes. He also was a key participant in the development of the widely used fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomics hybridization (CGH) tests that map the genetic material in breast cancer patients’ cells.
