Personalized Cancer Treatment
The completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 led to a drastic expansion of medical science that will eventually enable doctors to treat diseases, particularly cancer, on a patient-by-patient basis.
Michael Berens, Ph.D., professor and director at Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) in Phoenix, will discuss how diseases cause genetic changes in patients, how those changes differ from patient to patient and how they are affected by specific cancer treatments. The research opens the door to designing individual protocols for patients, based on their genetic mutations.
Monday Morning Lectures are held in the Renaissance Theater at 10 a.m., except for Jan. 21, which is 9:30 a.m. Tickets to all Monday Lectures are $5 per person and may be purchased at the door of the Renaissance Theater on the day of the lecture.
