SmB Cafe March 2020
Thursday the 12th
After a nice start of 2020 we will be back in March with another Cafe in BioPartner.
Representing the forgotten cancer
Ieva Palubeckaitė (Post-doc, LUMC)
Sarcoma, often called the forgotten cancer, is rare in adults (1% adult cancers) and relatively prevalent in children (15% childhood cancers). As it is made up of over 50 different subtypes it can be extremely difficult to diagnose and treat. For many sarcoma subtypes therapeutic outcomes have not improved in decades.
My research is dedicated to creating more representative in vitro models of sarcoma and establishing novel methods of analysis for the investigation of rare cancer. Both the models and the analytical methods developed will be used for discovery of effective therapeutic options and biomarkers. More representative models will increase the predictive value of pre-clinical therapeutic testing and ultimately improve the life expectancy of sarcoma patients.
Let us know if you'll be there!
Attendance to Science meets Business events is free of charge. However, in order to know how many seats, drinks and snacks we should provide, we would like to know how many people to expect. This is why we kindly request you register for the events if you are joining, and please let us know if you will no longer be able to attend (no hard feelings). See you soon!
