From Legislation to the Lab: Advancements in Cancer Research (Virtual Event)

Wednesday, November 30, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pmEST

**Pre-Registration is now closed. You may register day-of at**

Fifty-one years after the landmark National Cancer Act was signed into law by President Nixon, public policy continues to play a critical role in advancing biomedical research. From public funding of cancer research to improved access to cutting-edge therapies, state and federal policy have pushed cancer research forward. But gaps remain, inequities persist and opportunities abound. 

Join ACS CAN for a wide-ranging, virtual discussion about the role state and federal policymakers can play in advancing more therapies and, ultimately, more cures. 

Event Speakers & Panelists:

  • Angela B. Freeman, M.S., J.D., Barnes & Thornburg (Moderator) 
  • Kelvin Lee, MD, Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • Andrew Mesecar, Ph.D., Purdue University Center for Cancer Research
