Tittel: "Cancer and aging: Facing realities and an uncertain future"
Sammendrag: The medical research community has for decades sustained the myth that the solution to cancer is just around the corner. The fact is that today's cancer epidemic is not a problem that modern medicine is about to solve - it is a problem we are about to create. It is therefore necessary to communicate a more realistic understanding of cancer and cancer research. Here I will discuss this problem of cancer communication in relation to the fundamental problem of cancer biology. How do we explain to the public that cancer is a natural consequence of aging - and that the better we get at treating cancer, the longer we live and the more cancer there will be in the population? Is there a way to beat this problem - and if so, what kind of world are we creating?
Ordstyrer: Lars A. Akslen.
Etter seminarer har CCBIO gleden av å invitere til en uformell sammenkomst utenfor auditoriet med servering av pizza og drikke.
Velkommen til alle forskere, studenter og andre interesserte!
