Public Evening Lecture series — Bringing Science to the Public
The Center of Cancer Systems Biology cordially invites you to its Fall 2013 Free Public Evening Lecture:
CANCER WITHOUT DISEASE: KEEPING MICROSCOPIC TUMORS DORMANT
Nava Almog, Ph.D.
Do you know that nearly everyone has microscopic dormant tumors that are harmless? Come find out how scientists are trying to identify key factors to keep tumors from growing.
The talk will be held in the Seton Auditorium at Steward St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, 736
Cambridge Street, Brighton, MA 02135 (directions below).
Admission is free and open to all. Free parking will be available in Garage B. Please
obtain a parking ticket on entering, and validation stickers will be
distributed at the lecture. Refreshments will be
The talk will be followed by a reception where attendees can interact with the speaker and researchers from the Center of Cancer Systems Biology.

and the Outreach & Education program of the Integrative Cancer Biology Program (ICBP) of the
National Cancer Institute, NIH.
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
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
