Sneak preview of “Exploring the genome’s ‘dark matter’”

Paul Goldsmith, July 12th, 2013

Update July 18: Check out a Storify of the live tweets from this event.

In the second 2013 installment of Midsummer Night’s Science, our annual public lecture series, medical oncologist and Broad associate member Levi Garraway will explore how genomic technology is helping to reveal cancer’s long-held secrets, and the many ways those findings, both the expected and unexpected, are changing the lives of patients.In particular, Garraway will detail his recent pioneering work on the genes involved in melanoma — the deadliest form of skin cancer.

In this sneak peak video of Garraway’s upcoming lecture, hear him describe how genomic technology is helping “move the needle” in cancer care.

Come out and join us on Wednesday for a probing look at the intersection of genomics and medicine. As always, Midsummer Nights’ Science lectures are free and open to the public, but we ask that you register to reserve your spot.

In case you can’t join us, be sure to follow this and every Midsummer Night’s Science lecture live on Twitter: hashtag #broadtalks. We’ll also be posting the full video on our YouTube channel at a later date.
