Dr. Douglas Lowy

Lowy presentation

On Thursday, June 29, 2017 the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research was honored to host the Acting Director of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Douglas Lowy.  This was the very first time an NCI Director has visited Purdue University.  Dr. Lowy spoke about the NCI's efforts in cancer research, the current national policy on biomedical research, the tremendous strides of the Cancer Moonshot Initiative, the NCI Experimental Therapeutics Program (NExT), and how cancer centers like ours are working to solve the cancer problem.  We are deeply grateful to Dr. Lowy for his time and efforts.
