Future Anti-Cancer Targets: Put the Cart before the Horses

February 19, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
JABSOM, MEB 315, 651 Ilalo Street, Honolulu Add to Calendar

University of Hawaii Cancer Center is honored to host world-renowned researcher, Dr. Tak Mak for his lecture entitled "Future Anti-Cancer Targets: Put the Cart before the Horses".

Dr. Mak is a world-renowned researcher who in 1984 identified the T cell Receptor gene. T-cells are the body’s defense cells, which help fight viral infections, “Helper” T-cells possess receptors that can identify viruses, and signal “killer” T-cells to attack. Dr. Mak's discovery was an enormous breakthrough in the understanding of the body’s immune system. Since that time Dr. Mak has devoted himself to curing cancer. His approach is to understand the mechanisms that keep cancer cells alive and then target these mechanisms to kill the cancer cells. He has made many groundbreaking discoveries in this field. His talk will focus on this work.
