Public Evening Lecture series  —  Bringing Science to the Public

About the CCSB Public Evening Lecture series

The CCSB holds Spring and Fall Public Evening Lectures to inform the community, patients, friends, and peers about ongoing efforts in cancer systems biology and how they apply to the general public. The aim of these lectures is to communicate science in layman's terms and thus excite our neighbors about our work.

The public evening lecture series is part of the CCSB's outreach and education effort funded by the National Cancer Institute's Integrative Cancer Biology Program (ICBP). The CCSB is located on the campus of Steward St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton (Boston), Massachusetts, USA and brings together diverse researchers to better understand the molecular and tissue-level events underlying the evolution and progression of cancer. The team of lab investigators and research staff assembled at the CCSB is working to develop novel quantitative and qualitative approaches to the problem of cancer, both at the molecular and at the systems levels.
