159 Simmons Cancer Center Grand Rounds: "Using transposon-based forward genetics and targeted nucleases to define factors causing progression from neurofibroma to malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor" (060316)
The purpose of the Simmons Cancer Center Grand Rounds is to fulfill the need to provide oncology physicians, scientists, residents, clinical fellows, and other interested individuals with the latest information and research on advances in cancer etiology, pathogenesis and therapeutics. Eminent cancer research scholars and physicians will be brought to the Simmons Cancer Center to discuss and disseminate this knowledge through lectures, audio/video presentations, case studies, syllabi or other handouts, and question and answer sessions.
The target audience for this program is UT Southwestern faculty, physicians, residents, and fellows in Oncology, e.g., Medical, Pediatric, Surgical, Radiation and Neurological.
The overall objectives of this program are to utilize the latest cancer therapeutics in the most effective way possible for the benefit of UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas cancer patients.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to integrate the latest peer reviewed cancer research scholarship and knowledge into their clinical and translational research programs and translate the clinical and research experiences and knowledge of their peers and eminent scholars into new and emerging cancer research and patient care.
