The open house
This is a unique opportunity to:
- Meet and share experiences with other people affected by cancer
- Learn how blood cancers start
- Learn about some of the most promising approaches for new treatments
- See state-of-the-art drug screening robots
- Talk directly with leading clinician Dr. David Hermel of Scripps Hematology and Oncology
This open house is hosted by the Cancer Center’s Community Advisory Board. Its members strive to bridge the gap between biomedical science and the people who need it most: patients and the families and friends who love and support them.
The event takes place on campus in Chairmen's Hall, Building 5, followed by tours and a reception.
Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with cancer scientists, survivors, and research advocates during an informal evening reception featuring healthy nibbles and refreshing drinks. Guided tours will be offered throughout the event, giving attendees a behind-the-scenes look into our scientists’ varied approaches to cancer research.
