Hopes, Predictions and Realities: Is Biomedical Research Delivering On Its Promises?
Date:10/22/2007

Dr. Nurse, 2001 Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, will appear at Sixth & I for a critical examination of the latest breakthroughs in the biological sciences and their potential to transform medical treatment. Dr. Nurse spent over three decades as a research scientist in the United Kingdom, where he was born. His research led to the identification of cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) as the key regulator molecule controlling the process by which cells make copies of themselves. This is important for understanding growth, development and cancer. His most recent post was as head of the world's largest volunteer-supported cancer research organization, Cancer Research UK.

Laura Landro, editor and award winning writer for The Wall Street Journal will interview Dr. Nurse about biomedical research in general, cancer research in particular, and his passionate commitment to promoting fruitful dialogue between scientists and society.

In 1991, Laura Landro was diagnosed with a form of blood cancer called chronic myelogenous leukemia. Over the course of the months and years that followed, she used her training as a reporter to obtain critical information about the disease affecting her, improving her ability to interact with her doctors and eventually emerging as a survivor. Laura won the National Print Journalism Award from the Leukemia Society of America for her WSJ article, "A Survivor's Tale," and is the author of Survivor: Taking Control of Your Fight Against Cancer; she remains an outspoken advocate of patient empowerment through education.
