Melanoma – Cancer Center Open House

March 20 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Melanoma. Meet the scientists working to better understand melanoma to prevent metastasis. Learn how new drugs are created and advanced to the clinic. Ask a melanoma oncologist about current treatment options and get an insider’s view on what’s to come.

This is a unique opportunity to:

  • Meet and share experiences with other people affected by melanoma.
  • Learn how melanoma skin cancer starts and how cancer cells can become resistant to treatment.
  • Learn about some of the most promising approaches for new treatments.
  • See state-of-the-art drug screening robots.
  • Talk directly with survivors and a clinician.

Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with cancer scientists, survivors, and research advocates during an informal evening reception featuring healthy nibbles and refreshing drinks. Guided tours will be offered throughout the event, giving attendees a behind-the-scenes look into our scientists’ varied approaches to cancer research.

This open house is hosted by the Cancer Center’s Community Advisory Board. Its members strive to bridge the gap between biomedical science and the people who need it most: patients and the families and friends who love and support them.
