Event Details

Join fellow TCAN members and guests when Stanford professor Jennifer Cochran visits Minneapolis and discusses how her laboratory uses interdisciplinary techniques in chemistry, biology, and engineering to create tailor-made proteins for cancer imaging and therapy. She will share how several of her lab's designer proteins are under various stages of development, with the ultimate goal of translation into human patients. We hope to see you there!
