Origins of Cancer: Tackling Provocative Questions Van Andel Research Institute; July 21, 2017  Origins of Cancer is a one-day symposium that brings together students, scientists and medical professionals to discuss the latest breakthroughs in cancer research. The theme for 2017 is Tackling Provocative Questions, which will highlight recent progress from the National Cancer Institute’s Provocative Questions Initiative.
Speakers will address the following key questions:
• How do variations in tumor-associated immune responses contribute to differences in cancer risk, incidence or progression?
• What are the underlying molecular mechanisms that are responsible for the functional differences between benign proliferative diseases and premalignant states?
• What cancer models or other approaches can be developed to study clinically stable disease and the subsequent transition to progressive disease?
How does microbiota affect the response to cancer therapies?
$100 Non-students
$50 Students

BLD 854: Advanced Flow Cytometry Laboratory is offered July 17-21, 2017  This class features hands on experience in quality assurance exercises, multi-color assay design, multiplex bead assay, data analysis, and sorting. Students will use various flow cytometers on the MSU Campus and will access analysis software in our computer laboratory. This course provides first-hand experience in advanced flow cytometry concepts and practices and is a companion to the online lecture BLD 853: Advanced Flow Cytometry. BLD 853 and BLD 854 contain concepts and exercises to clinicians and researchers that are critical to successful flow cytometry. Students completing both courses (BLD 853 and BLD 854) are eligible for an Advanced Flow Cytometry Certificate. BLD 853 has assisted some students with passing the ICCE exam.
