All are invited to participate in the 5th Annual AD&T Symposium. This year's symposium will focus on Molecular Diagnostics & Cancer.

Our keynote speaker is Steven Soper, Foundation Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas. Prof. Soper's research concentrates on the development of in vitro cancer diagnostics based on a combination of innovative methods for isolating circulating tumor cells and the development of nanoscale devices for next-generation sequencing. Often referred to as lab-on-a-chip technologies, Soper's efforts pinpoint diagnostics for cancer, stroke and infectious diseases as well as bringing diagnostics to the point-of-care.

Other speakers include:
Sumita Pennathur, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara
Matthew Lockett, Department of Chemistry, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Sharon Stack, Director of the Harper Cancer Research Center, University of Notre Dame
Amanda Hummon, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Notre Dame
Robert Stahelin, Associate Professor, Biology & Molecular Biology, IU School of Medicine-South Bend
Matthew Webber, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Notre Dame

Registration and refreshments will begin at 8:30 a.m. and talks begin at 9 a.m. All attendees are invited to lunch from noon to 1 p.m.

At 3 p.m. we will feature a poster session of graduate and undergraduate posters related to diagnostics & therapeutics research at Notre Dame.

The symposium will be held in the lower level of McCourtney (with lunch on the first floor). No pre-registration is required.
