5th Annual AD&T Symposium: Molecular Diagnostics & Cancer
|Start:||3/2/2017 at 8:30AM|
|End:||3/2/2017 at 4:00PM|
All are invited to participate in the 5th Annual AD&T Symposium on March 2, 2017, in McCourtney Hall. This year's symposium will focus on Molecular Diagnostics & Cancer.
Our keynote speaker this year is Steven Soper, Foundation Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas. Prof. Soper's research concentrates on the development of in vitro cancer diagnostics based on a combination of innovative methods for isolating circulating tumor cells and the development of nanoscale devices for next-generation sequencing. Often referred to as lab-on-a-chip technologies, Soper’s efforts pinpoint diagnostics for cancer, stroke and infectious diseases as well as bringing diagnostics to the point-of-care.
