The War On Cancer....a Science in the News Lecture

The War on Cancer: Where we Are in the Battle, and Why we Haven’t Won.

These talks will be held from 7PM – 9PM in the Pfizer Auditorium at Harvard University.  

I will be wearing a meetup pin and be there by 6:15.   I will be just outside the auditorium doors gathering people.  We should head in for seats around 6:30 or so in order to try to get seats together.   

If you miss the group before hand, after the disucssion is over, we will meet again outside the doors of the auditorium in the hallway to discuss the lecture a bit, allow for restroom breaks and for those who are interested in grabbing a bite to eat and a beer, we can head over to John Harvards for further discussion and socializing.

This lecture is one of a series being put on by a wonderful group of people at Science in the News.   They have a series of lectures in the Fall in the Longwood area, Science by the Pint where scientists mingle with intersted people allowing their brains to be picked mercilessly and now they are also sponsoring some lectures at the Havard Cambridge Campus.   For more information about them go to their link:

Hope to see you there!

    As always the lectures were very well done. Loved the presenters as they were versed in their specialties and able to answer questions clearly and welcomed participation from audience members during and after the lecture.

    One of the better lectures I've been to in this series. Came away with a clear understanding of what cancer basically is at a cellular level, how it spreads, what the various treatments do, what they're trying to do about it, and what they're up against. Well presented.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
