The symposium will feature a keynote address by Dr. Sharpless and presentations by other local and national investigators, including: Supriya Mohile, Ross Levine, Sheila Stewart, Janko Nicolich-Žugich, Jason Bielas, Jonathan Wanagat, Marcos DaSilva Goncalves and Andrea LaCroix.
You are invited to attend a three-day symposium entitled "Understanding the interplay between cancer and aging: Biology and function" co-hosted by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Life and Longevity After Cancer (LILAC): the Women’s Health Initiative Cancer Survivor Cohort Study.
The impetus for this symposium comes from the renewal of LILAC. With assistance from the late Dr. Arti Hurria, the goal of LILAC is to use the cohort of cancer survivors (currently 73–100+ years of age) and the larger WHI cohort to address biological and clinical questions associated with cancer and aging, including accelerated aging and resilience. The goal of this workshop is to catalyze new research and collaborations on this pressing topic.
This symposium will be held from 9 a.m. to noon (PST) each day, February 22-24; and is open to researchers at Fred Hutch and University of Washington as well as LILAC collaborators and Women’s Health Initiative Investigators.
