CCBIO Special Lunch-Seminar Thursday 30.03.2023 with Edward R. Smith

Dear all,

We are happy to invite you to a CCBIO Special Seminar, with a light lunch included, March 30th 2023 – 11.30–12.30 at Auditorium B301, Sentralblokken, HUS.

Professor Edward R. Smith will give the talk “Learning from tumor to treat stroke”, – showing how the cross-pollination between benchtop scientists and full-time clinicians led to a unique insight that a shared biological mechanism might be pathologic in one disease process – and helpful in another, seemingly unrelated, disease.

A light lunch will be included after the lecture, and for this we encourage you to register you preferences via this link.

Michael Scott endowed chair in neurosurgery at Boston Children’s Hospital.  He serves as the co-director of the Cerebrovascular Surgery and Interventions Center, vice-chair of the #1-ranked department of pediatric neurosurgery in the US and leads a translational research laboratory in the Vascular Biology Program, focusing on development of non-invasive biomarkers and novel therapies for brain tumors and stroke.  Dr. Smith heads one of the largest pediatric cerebrovascular programs in the country, and innovations from his research and clinical efforts have been incorporated in current national guidelines, with the goal of improving patient outcomes.
