Can We Find a Cure? Challenges and Opportunities in Breast Cancer

September 12, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Lisa Carey, Richardson and Marilyn Jacobs Preyer Distinguished Professor in Breast Cancer Research

Cancer enters the lives of almost every family in America, but are medical researchers now working in a social and scientific context that impedes or facilitates the search for a cure for this persistent, dangerous disease? We’ll examine this question with a leading UNC expert, who will help us understand the challenges and new opportunities that are shaping breast cancer research and treatments.
