Science Thursdays- Targeting Cancer Cell Movement and Metastasis

DateFebruary 14, 2019Time7:00 - 8:00 pm
LocationMayborn Museum Complex
DescriptionOrganized and sponsored by the Department of Physics at Baylor University, Science Thursdays is a series of one-hour talks on various scientific topics. No science background is required, only enthusiasm for and an open interest in science.

Mary Lynn Trawick

Targeting Cancer Cell Movement and Metastasis Most cancer deaths result from metastasis, the spread of cancer cells to surrounding tissue and more distant organs, and not from the primary tumor itself. In this talk, we will look at the metastatic process, and our progress in examining drug mechanisms that interfere with it by targeting specific proteins.

Mary Lynn Trawick (Ph.D., Case Western Reserve) is an Associate Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Baylor University.

Join the speaker and guests for coffee and cookies prior to each lecture at 6:30 pm. Science Thursdays lectures are free and open to the public; however, admission to the museum is not included.
