Astronaut David Wolf to speak at Purdue Cancer Moonshot event

A Purdue astronaut will join others Wednesday (June 29) in Neil Armstrong Hall to celebrate the University's part in the nation's Cancer Moonshot -- a focus of will and resources on defeating cancer like the 1960s focus on going to the moon. The public is invited to hear David Wolf and others discuss their work, their experiences and the call for new levels of collaboration.
