Vancouver, BC: Chancellor's Reception & Presentation on Killing Cancer Cells

Date: Monday, May 8, 2017 
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

The Honourable Michael H. Wilson
Chancellor, University of Toronto

cordially invites you to a thought-provoking talk by
Professor Patrick Gunning
University of Toronto Mississauga


What if we could target cancer cells without harming the healthy ones?

Prof. Gunning is designing a powerful set of molecules to do just that - switch off cancer-promoting proteins. This discovery could halt some of the deadliest cancer, like acute lymphoblastic leukemia and breast cancer.

Our speaker will discuss his novel treatment for a disease that touches everyone.


Prof. Gunning’s presentation is part of an ongoing series of compelling lectures for alumni, hosted in cities around the world. U of T Where You Are brings the University right into your community. Stay informed, inspired and connected, because together we are boundless.
