"Defining the genomic landscape of prostate cancer"
13th Annual Terplan Lecture
This event is sponsored by the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences, UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Kornel Terplan was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pathology for nearly 30 years, and this event is made possible, in part, through the Terplan Family Endowment. Every year for this lecture, we select an outstanding figure, not only in the science and practice of medicine, but also an exemplary community leader. It is our honor and privilege to announce this year’s speaker, Mark A. Rubin, MD. Dr. Rubin, is Vice-Chair of Experimental Pathology, and Director of the Translational Research Laboratory, from New York – Presbyterian Hospital – Cornell Medical College. He has done novel work in the field of the molecular pathogeneses of prostate cancer. He has identified a common recurrent gene fusion between TMPRSS2 and ETS genes which has changed the way we view the origins of prostate cancer. Following the talk and questions for the speaker, we will again host our usual wine and cheese reception for the audience.
