Moving Breast Cancer Treatments FORWARD

Registration is open for JKTG Foundation’s annual cancer research symposium held virtually October 28, 2021 from 1 – 3:30 p.m. EST. This year’s presentations and discussions will focus on immune cells and metastasis.

One of the world’s leading cancer researchers, Lisa Coussens, PhD, will deliver the Jayne Koskinas Memorial Lecture. A panel featuring researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Indiana University will round out the event.

“By convening a distinguished group to talk possibilities, discoveries and the research behind both, we get one step closer to better health care for those diagnosed with cancer,” said Ted Giovanis, founder and president of JKTG Foundation. “The Foundation strongly believes in the power of collaboration and events such as this give an opportunity for traditionally siloed research to creatively question traditional thinking and transform how we diagnose and treat cancer.”

Sponsored by the JKTG Foundation, the event is supported the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health.
