sabatini_youngSave the Date! We are delighted to announce that the 2015 Whitehead Colloquium will be held on Saturday, October 17th at Whitehead Institute in Cambridge. Come discover what makes Whitehead so unique through this half-day immersion event!

The program will feature keynote addresses on our new initiative “Cancer: Treating the Untreatable” led by Whitehead faculty members Rick Young and David Sabatini. Their collaboration combines the latest in genetic screening and sequencing, disease modeling, and medicinal chemistry. Through this new approach, their aim is to deliver breakthroughs to help hundreds of thousands of patients with the most aggressive, “untreatable” tumors of the lung, breast, ovary, pancreas, skin and blood.

Official registration will be available in late summer 2015. If you are interested in attending this event, we encourage you to pre-register today.
