FIRESIDE CHAT SEMINAR: Innovative New Cancer Treatments! with Chris Hubert, Research Associate, Cleveland Clinic

Not unlike 3-D printing, researchers at the Cleveland Clinic are growing living 3D “mini tumors” to identify more efficient and effective brain cancer treatments, especially for glioblastoma the most aggressive type of brain tumor. Using bio-technology to create systems that more closely mimic the natural tumor environment will assist in identifying new targets sites within a tumor to create effective therapies for patients. Come hear Chris talk about the innovative work he and others are doing in this field and how new technologies play an important part!

Join us every Wednesday evening for an hour or two of stimulating conversation with entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial thinkers! If you have ever wondered how businesses or organizations get started, here’s the chance to find out. The seminars run from September 5 through November 14 (no speakers on September 12 or November 7).

Each Wednesday an entrepreneur will tell their story. Some of these entrepreneurs may be well seasoned; some may be just starting out. Hear how they did it…what they did right…what they might do differently, and what they might do next! This semester our focus is on technology, the College’s theme for the year.
