Lecture: From Cyclops Sheep to Vaccines
“How are we Approaching Cancer Treatment? From Cyclops Sheep to Vaccines”
Lecture by Amy Andreotti
Cancer encompasses an array of specific diseases that require tailored treatment approaches. Andreotti is an Iowa State University professor of biochemistry, biophysics & molecular biology. A biochemist with expertise in structural biology and immune cell signaling, Andreotti will highlight three stories that illustrate how scientists and physicians are devising new approaches to specific types of cancers. These vignettes will show how serendipity drives discovery, how great cancer drugs can be plagued by resistance, and how vaccines and immunotherapies are reshaping cancer treatments of the future.
The Spring 2023 LAS Dean’s Lecture is co-sponsored by ISU Lectures.
