Lifelong Learning Niagara is a third age learning organization providing learning programs and experiences for adults 50+ living in the Niagara region.

Presenter: Dr. Michael Levesque, Medical Head of Systemic Therapy, Walker Family Cancer Centre and Assistant Professor, Dept. of Oncology, McMaster University

Dr. Levesque will review the evolution of drug therapies for cancer with increasing abilities to discriminate malignant cells from normal cells of the host. Although chemotherapy still has its place for the treatment, and even cure, of many cancers, the past two decades have witnessed rapid development of new treatments that capitalize on our better understanding of cancer biology and the interplay between cancer and the immune system.

This event is hosted by Lifelong Learning Niagara.
