Physical Sciences, Engineering & Cancer Workshop
November 20, 2013
A Physical Sciences, Engineering & Cancer Workshop will be held on Dec. 6, 2013, 1-4:30 pm, MGRN 121 on the Purdue campus. The workshop is open to to all faculty, post-docs and students interested in learning more about key clinical questions in oncology and identifying Purdue technologies that could be of use. Faculty in physical sciences and engineering are invited to participate in a poster session following the clinical presentations. Faculty must register (email@example.com) by November 30, 2013 to reserve a poster board.
Five oncology clinicians from the IU Simon Cancer Center will address the following questions as they relate to theri clincial experiences:
• Are you faced with bottlenecks that "new" technologies might be able to remove? What are the bottlenecks?
• What information would you like to know about a patient, but don’t know of a technology to obtain the information?
• What current experimental technologies in clinical research seem inadequate and need improvement?
• Which biological/medical problems can benefit from detection and analysis of both whole cells and molecular markers isolated from the same sample?
