MD Anderson's 19th annual Making Cancer History® Seminar in Aspen, Colorado, July 24, 2017, will highlight advances in our mission to end cancer, such as the use of immunotherapy in the fight against melanoma, which is a focus of the institution's Moon Shots Program™, a comprehensive effort to significantly reduce cancer deaths and transform cancer care. Attendees also will learn about progress of the Neurodegeneration Consortium, a multi-institutional collaboration led by MD Anderson to understand the relationship between Alzheimer's disease and cancer and to build on recent successes in cancer drug development to create more effective treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.
The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will be held at Aspen Meadows Resort's Paepcke Auditorium, 1000 North 3rd St. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. The seminar begins at 1 p.m. and a question-and-answer session will follow the presentations. The program concludes at 3 p.m. Seating and on-site parking are limited. Participants are encouraged to use public transportation or walk or bike to Aspen Meadows.
