“New and Novel Approaches to Breast Cancer” 

Dr. Slamon is one of the pioneers of the breast cancer drug Herceptin, which was clinically tested in humans right here in Edmonton. Herceptin saved the lives of 600 Albertans to date—a number that grows by 60 each year. We are honored to host this lecture for the public. Dr. Slamon’s talk will be followed by a brief question and answer period and everyone is welcome to attend.
