SOLUTIONS with/in/sight: Oxygenating the Pipeline

Wednesdsay, October 6, 2021 at 6:30 p.m.

This evening event profiles the bench to bedside progress of the Cima Lab's efforts targeting tumor oxygen levels as a vulnerability in cancer. Through innovative prototyping and clinical trials, researchers have developed a responsive sensor to sample and relay information about oxygen levels that can inform treatment decisions to dramatically affect how tumors respond to radiation therapy. Discover the ins and out of personalized treatment and learn how the team is drawing on resources across the research spectrum to improve cancer treatment and patient outcomes.
