Science Diplomats to present ‘Conquering Cancer: Medicine of the Future’
“Conquering Cancer: Medicine of the Future” will be the focus of the next Science in the News talk presented by the Yale Science Diplomats, a group of graduate students dedicated to making complex scientific topics easily understood by people of all ages.
The lecture will be presented twice: on Tuesday, May 19, in the New Haven Free Public Library, 133 Elm St.; and on Tuesday, May 26, in the James Blackstone Memorial Library, 758 Main St., Branford, Connecticut. Both talks will take place 6:30–7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
“How can oil, germs, and our own immune system lead to a cure for cancer?” write the organizers. “By thinking like an engineer, basic scientists have developed groundbreaking tools and technologies that use unusual and even counter-intuitive methods to help us eradicate cancer. Come listen as three Yale scientists discuss these ‘Medicines of the Future.’”
The Science in the News lecture series is dedicated to providing people with a better understanding of the scientific underpinnings of the issues in the news every day.
