Limited Capacity seats available

My lecture will describe our use of small molecules to discover a new mechanism to control aberrant transcription of key genetic programs in cancer. I will also describe our progress towards initiating first-in-class clinical trials based on our discoveries. Synthesis and development of precision targeting small molecules has played a key role in this project
