Innovation in Research 2019 is your opportunity to learn with reasonable depth about our community’s breakthroughs, opportunities, and foundational development for the future.
And, at the end of the day we’ll buy you an appropriate beverage.
The day is designed to be relevant for scientists, but not only scientists. If you are in business, or a student, or a community member interested in what’s going on in our neighborhood, you will come away with fresh knowledge and new relationships.
As it happens, a number of regional researchers and companies are making breakthroughs in understanding and treating cancers. In addition, you will learn about initiatives to build the regional biotech cluster and thriving collaborations amongst the region’s many academic institutions.
We are very proud to play a role among the many organizations and institutions that are driving life science research, development, and patient engagement across the region.
Novel Therapeutic Strategies for Cancer and Age-Related Diseases
Evripidis Gavathiotis, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Departments of Biochemistry and Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Dr. Gavathiotis’s research focuses on cell death and cell survival processes, which play an important role in human physiology, contributing to cancer and several age-related diseases. His efforts have focused on critical protein-protein interactions and understanding their mechanisms. This work has led to the development of novel approaches and therapeutics to target them.
For our third cross-border, cross-silo, cross-cultural symposium, we invite you to join researchers, engineers, and data scientists who are supporting growth throughout the entire life science cluster.
