UTM Beyond the Campus | Drug Discovery in Academia
Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018
7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Paletta Lakefront Park Mansion
4250 Lakeshore Rd., Burlington, ON (MAP)
Join U of T Mississauga alumni and friends in Burlington for a talk on Drug Discovery in Academia featuring Patrick Gunning, Canada Research Chair in Medicinal Chemistry and Professor, Department of Chemical & Physical Sciences, University of Toronto Mississauga.
Professor Gunning will describe the seemingly insurmountable challenges that he and his drug discovery team face in developing new drug molecules to fight the most rare and lethal of human cancers, including glioblastoma (brain cancer) and acute myeloid leukemia (blood cancer).
From navigating the obstacles of the human body to the complexities of creating molecules that target cancer-promoting proteins, Professor Gunning breaks down the drug development process to show how hard work—and a bit of luck—can lead to new, less toxic drugs for clinical trials.
Register online to attend. Space is limited.
Complimentary refreshments will be served.
