Genomic Instability and Cancer: Early Detection and Novel Therapeutics

Dr. Joe Gray of the Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine, Dr. R. Stephen Lloyd of the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences and Dr. Brian Druker of the Knight Cancer Institute of Oregon Health & Science University are hosting the Genomic Instability Symposium. Friday, October 24, 9:00am-6:00pm at OHSU in the Old Library Auditorium with the main topic being Early Detection of Cancer using Genomic Instability as a Marker. Dr. Druker will be presenting the vision of the Knight Cancer Institute for the early detection of cancer as a major thrust of the ongoing mission.
