Eighteenth Annual Interdisciplinary Cancer Research Workshop.
The Eighteen Annual Interdisciplinary Cancer Research Workshop was another one in a highly successful series of these New Orleans workshops. It was held on March 3, 1995, in a new location-at the J. Bennett Johnston Building of the Tulane University Medical Center. With a single exception, all the previous workshops took place at the University of New Orleans. Similarly, as all the past workshops, it was sponsored by the Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans, a United Way Agency. It was again organized by Peter Politzer (University of New Orleans), with the assistance of Anita H. Buckel (University of New Orleans) and James R. Jeter (Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans). The three invited speakers were William N. Hait (The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Piscataway, NJ), Joachim G. Liehr (Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology, The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Galveston, TX), and Patrice C. Ferriola (Department of Cell and Molecular Toxicology, Chemical Industry Institute of Toxicology, Research Triangle Park, NC). A one-hour discussion period after the conclusion of the last presentation represented an excellent forum for an exchange of ideas and research results among the speakers and the workshop participants. Lee Roy Morgan (Dekk-Tec, New Orleans) served as the moderator of the discussion session.更多
