Targeting cancer in the third dimension

Dr. Kristine Wadosky (Postdoctoral researcher, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center)
Prostate cancer has the highest diagnosis rate compared to other cancers in men, excepting
skin cancer. Most patients with prostate cancer are curable, but advanced prostate cancer
resists treatment. In our laboratory, we use a new technique to grow tiny 3D tumors in a dish so we can use them to discover new treatments for patients with resistant prostate cancer.

A cure for cancer? WTF is taking so long?

Dr. Joyce Ohm (Associate Professor, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center)
One of the most common questions that I get asked when I meet new people is “will we ever have a cure for cancer?” In this talk, I will try and give you a peek behind the curtain of cancer research and tell the story of one of the most consequential discoveries of the last decade with regard to how we treat patients: the identification of mutations in some patients that can predict response to certain targeted therapies. Simultaneously both hopeful and frustrating, we’ll discuss how this research evolved over the years and into a new world of “personalized medicine”.
