iest forms of cancer that kills about 3,000 people each year in the United States, with half of those diagnosed dying within one year. Rates of new cases of mesothelioma in parts of the world, including Europe and China, have risen steadily over the past decade.

Funding for this event is provided by the Weinman Foundation's Innovators in Cancer Research Fund. This Fund was established in 2008 for the University of Hawaii Cancer Center by Barry and Virginia Weinman to promote translational cancer research aimed at moving cancer research findings to the patient's bedside. The Fund brings prominent leaders in cancer research to Hawaii each year to establish research collaborations with the University of Hawaii Cancer Center and members of the University of Hawaii Cancer Consortium.

The event is intended for researchers and healthcare professionals, and the cost for attendance is $40. For more information or to register call (808) 691-4406 or email at cme@queens.org.
