Science Writers’ Seminar: Blood-borne Cancers
||National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Science Writers’ Seminar Series at Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute, Boston, Mass. Many exciting
advances have been made in treating a variety
of blood-borne cancers. Please join us for an
in-depth look at the latest scientific discoveries
about this research. The seminar will provide
perspective on timely issues such as the use of
stem cell transplantation to treat certain types
of cancer, the use of old therapies used in new
ways to cure multiple myeloma, and the risk of
a blood-borne cancer based on one’s family history.
A tour of the Dana-Farber research facilities
will be offered at the conclusion of the formal
presentations. This seminar also can be viewed
live or via an archived Web cast at http://videocast.nih.gov/.
