Oncology Solutions Forum 2009

On November 5 and 6, 2009, the Koch Institute hosted a one and a half day educational event for interested members of the KI's community of friends and supporters. Members of the Koch Institute's faculty presented details of their bold investigations in pursuit of new methods for diagnosing, treating, and monitoring cancer; the inaugural appointee to the Koch Institute's Clinical Investigator program presented findings on the leading edge of lung cancer research; and Forum attendees received a report on the progress of construction of the KI's new research and technology facility, scheduled for completion in December 2010. Presentations were videotaped and can be viewed below.
