Improving Outcomes of Women’s Reproductive Cancers


April 3, 2019
6:30 – 8:30 pm


NYSCF Research Institute
619 West 54th Street

Women’s reproductive cancers – such as ovarian and cervical cancer – affect millions worldwide, yet research funding for these cancers has been disproportionately scarce. This event marked the launch of the NYSCF Women’s Reproductive Cancer Initiative, which aims to shift paradigms in the way these cancers are studied and treated, in collaboration with leading cancer experts across the globe.

Dr. Laura Andres-Martin of the NYSCF Research Institute spoke about the new ovarian cancer research program she is launching that leverages the power of stem cell technology to create a living biobank of patient tumor samples. She was joined by a panel of Initiative collaborators (Drs. Ursula Matulonis, Siddhartha Mukherjee, and Carla Grandori), to discuss emerging approaches to women’s reproductive cancer research and the new technologies that are enabling personalized treatment strategies.
