‘Quest for a Cure’ to offer insight into cancer research at SU
Syracuse University’s Relay for Life Committee will host “Quest for a Cure,” an event to educate the community about the latest cancer breakthroughs that are taking place in SU’s own laboratories, on Thursday, Feb. 4. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Life Sciences Auditorium and is free and open to the public.
Michael Cosgrove, assistant professor of biology in SU’s College of Arts and Sciences and a cancer researcher, will talk about his work to find new treatments for aggressive leukemias. Cosgrove’s research was funded in part with profits from last year’s Relay for Life.
“This junction of academic research, cancer advocacy and outreach is part of what engages the energy of SU’s initiatives with the greater Syracuse community and the world outside of it,” state Sarah DiGiulio and David Rosen, the SU 2010 Relay for Life student co-chairs. “We are thrilled to make this event possible.”
