Joel Bader will deliver a lecture as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Bader is a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Stopping Cancer Metastasis
Cancer’s lethality comes not from the growth of the original tumor, but from the spread of the disease to distant sites in the body. Professor Bader will describe ongoing work to dissect the gene and protein networks driving cancer metastasis, suggesting targets for therapeutic intervention.
The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
