Science After Dark January 2017

Published on January 4, 2017, by

The Central Coast STEM Collaborative (CCSTEM) will continue its ongoing, informal, educational lecture series “Science After Dark” at 6:30pm, January 17th, at Luis Wine Bar in San Luis Obispo. The series is scheduled for the third Tuesday of every month through May 2017.

According to the Cancer Research Institute, “Cancer immunotherapy—treatments that harness and enhance the innate powers of the immune system to fight cancer—represents the most promising new cancer treatment approach since the development of the first chemotherapies in the late 1940s. Because of the immune system’s extraordinary power, its capacity for memory, its exquisite specificity, and its central and universal role in human biology, these treatments have the potential to achieve complete, long-lasting remissions and cancer cures, with few or no side effects, and for any cancer patient, regardless of their cancer type.”

Local Oncologist and cancer researcher David Palchak MD joins us at Science After Dark for a presentation on the different types of immunotherapy and the types of cancer they are used to treat, such as metastatic melanoma and lung cancer.

Where: Luis Wine Bar, 1021 Higuera Street, SLO (must be over age 21)
Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2017
Time: Discussion starts at 6:30pm, come early to get settled and order your beverage. Light appetizers available for purchase, or you may bring your own food. All beverages must be purchased at Luis Wine Bar. Selections include wine, beer, organic sodas, coffee, and tea.
Cost: $5.00 suggested donation
