Registration for the 2011 lectures is now open. Major Trends in Modern Cancer Research, features a group of leading scientists from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center presenting their work to high school students and science teachers, offering a chance for them to interact and ask questions about the latest advances in biomedical research. Midwood has always supported this event with a large number of research students.

The seminar will be held at the Rockefeller Research Laboratories, 430 East 67th Street (between First and York Avenues) on Wednesday, November 9, 2011, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. One half point of extra credit will be awarded to all students who attend and complete this assignment for any one of the speakers. Official attendance is taken by group photo at the end of the event. Place your completed (typed) assignment in my mailbox in the Research Room at any time during the school day on Thursday.

Registration is easy, but finding a seat with a good view isn’t. This event has gotten so popular that the folks at MSKCC needed to set up satellite viewing stations in adjacent conference rooms. Get there a bit early if possible. Light refreshments have traditionally been served before the lectures begin (pizza, chips, fruit, soda, coffee). Single use MetroCards will be made available for any student who needs one to attend.
