Join us at the Science Pub on Monday, July 30 at 7:00pm for:
If We Are What We Eat, Can We Prevent Cancer?
with Philippe Thuillier, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of PHPM, OHSU Cancer Institute http://www.ohsu.edu/croet/faculty/thuillier/
While new therapies and strategies have been successful in detecting and treating cancer earlier and earlier, the basic mystery of cancer remains unsolved. How and why do we get cancer? As the molecular biologists find the details that explain how a normal cell becomes a cancer cell, we still don't know the specific events in our lives that trigger cancer. Maybe even more important is whether we can prevent cancer and whether we might already have the tools to do so, even though we don't understand the how and why it works. The recent advances in food therapies suggest that what we eat has a strong impact on our metabolism and in gene activation, thus should it be surprising that diet may cause or may prevent cancer?
When: Monday, July 30
Presentation begins at 7:00pm and will last around 1.5 to 2 hours. Come early if you want to order food and drinks!
Where: bridgeport brewpub + bakery, 1313 NW Marshall, Portland, OR http://www.bridgeportbrew.com/
Just what is the Science Pub anyway?
The Science Pub http://www.omsi.edu/sciencepub is a monthly event where you can find out about advances in science and technology from leading researchers and scientists, all while enjoying food and beverages. Don't expect a remote speaker behind a distant podium. Instead, experience the informal atmosphere where you can interact with the expert and where there are no silly questions. No scientific background is required; just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge!
The Science Pub is held every last Monday of the month and is open to anyone and everyone. No RSVP is necessary. Please feel free to pass this on to your friends and colleagues, and we hope to see you there!
