Go Behind the Scenes at the UW Carbone Cancer Center Community Open House
You've probably heard about the groundbreaking research that takes place at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center. But have you ever seen it?
The Community Open House at the UW Carbone Cancer Center is your chance to meet face-to-face with our scientists who are working at the forefront of cancer research.
"Cancer is unfortunately a disease that continues to affect our families and friends," said Howard Bailey, MD, Carbone Cancer Center director. "By opening our doors on February 13, we're inviting our partners in our shared fight against cancer – our community – into our research labs and facilities so that they can see, firsthand, how they directly and indirectly help the world-class researchers and clinicians of the UW Carbone Cancer Center battle cancer."
Guests at the event will be welcomed by Dr. Bailey, then invited to visit our facilities, attend a research poster session and see exciting science in action. Our researchers, from undergraduates to professors, will be on hand to discuss their research initiatives and how they are working every day to beat cancer.
"Making sure our community is aware of the work we do, with them and for them, is very important to us," Bailey said. "That's why I hope people come and check out the innovative work we're doing here in their own backyard."
Held in the lobby of the Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC) beginning at 12:45pm on Saturday, February 13, this event is free and open to the public. Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will follow the research presentations.
Complimentary parking is available in UW lot 76. Registration and more details can be found uwhealth.org/uwcccopenhouse. Questions? Please contact Murph Dunne at firstname.lastname@example.org or (608) 263-2746.
