Dean’s Special Lecture – Convergent Science: Life Sciences and Engineering in Oncology

Dean’s Special Lecture
January 26th 2015
Convergent Science: Life Sciences and Engineering in Oncology
Peter Kuhn, Dean’s Professor of Biological Sciences
3 P.M., Lecture / Reception to FollowJoyce J. Cammilleri Hall, Dornsife Neuroscience Pavillion

A biological transition point is the initial, instigating change that occurs when a cancer transitions from benign to malignant, from local to distant or from treatment-sensitive to treatment-resistant. However, medicine is limited currently to treating the corresponding clinical transition point — the time at which this change is first detected due to an amassed population of changed cells. Learn more about how Peter Kuhn employs physical science and biological methods to study the factors that affect biological transition points in order to improve clinical decision-making and mitigate the damage caused by delayed clinical detection. By studying the changes occurring within individual tumor cells, within patients’ organ systems, and within populations of patients to chart the dynamic course of cancer evolution, he is working to better predict and thus better treat this ever-changing disease.
