Advances in Cancer Research at Northwestern

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Speaker Dr. Leonidas Platanias, Md, Phd., Director of The Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
The Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University diagnoses and treats more than 10,000 new cancer cases each year in partnership with Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The Center conducts groundbreaking research and clinical trials, professional education, and compassionate patient care. Dr. Platanias is excited about the never-before cancer fighting capabilities: “We have clearly seen a medical revolution—things that we thought were impossible just a few years ago. We are bringing advances in other fields into medicine and research, from genomics, engineering, data computation and chemistry, among others. As these capabilities continue to grow, more people will be cured faster—ultimately changing lives—and saving lives.”
HOSTED by the OLLI Academic Enrichment Committee.
