Cancer Center Seminar Series:  “Harnessing Evolutionary Dynamics to Control or Cure Metastatic Cancers”

Speaker: Robert Gatenby, MD, Chair of Radiology Department, Co-Director Cancer Biology and Evolution Program

Five Reasons to Attend this Seminar: 

1. Understand the dynamics of evolution beyond the “mutation-selection” sequence that is typically described in cancer literature.
2. Identify cancer treatment as a game played between the oncologist and cancer and the oncologist’s inherent advantages in the game.
3. Consider the eco-evolutionary dynamics of tumor resistance to therapy.
4. Does integration of evolutionary principles into cancer therapy improve outcome?
5. Cancer therapy as extinction: Dinosaurs or Galapagos Goats?

Lunch will be served from 12-12:30 p.m.
