Ever wondered what scientists' lives look like doing experiments day-in and day-out? Join us for a lab visit, step into scientists' shoes and explore where they work, eat and (almost) sleep.
Places are limited
No food or drinks allowed in the lab
Where to go:
7:00 pm: We will meet in front of Lutticken's Deli for the check in.
7:20 pm: we will walk together into the lab. You will have a chance to visit a lab and ask the scientists everything you always wanted to know!
You will find free parking close by at the Stock Farm Lot @ Oak.
We will visit a cancer research lab at Stanford : The Dean Felsher Lab
The Felsher lab is working on figuring out the mechanisms by which tumors come back or spread to other parts of the body. They study models of liver, lung, kidney cancers, and lymphoma.They notably focus on developing new innovative therapies to prevent cancer recurrence.
You wonder how they can do that? Come and visit their lair.
Our lab guide:
Dr. Virginie Baylot
Postdoc at Stanford, Oncology department
Her work: Liver cancer is a top global health problem due to its high rate of mortality and increasing incidence. The lethality of this disease can be attributed to both its rapid progression to invasion and metastasis making it surgically unresectable as well as its generally poor response to existing therapies. My work in Felsher lab shows the causal role of macrophages in liver cancer progression, leading to novel therapeutic strategies to effectively treat liver cancer.
