Partners for a Cure: Fighting Cancer in Mexico
Since 2011, Notre Dame’s Harper Cancer Institute has conducted innovative and integrative research that confronts the complex challenges of cancer. Through collaboration with long-time Notre Dame partners, Una Nueva Esperanza (UNE) and Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP), they hope to advance the understanding of leukemia and other cancers that affect children in Mexico. This important research aims to improve survival rates and provide support for Mexicans diagnosed with cancer. Dr. Sharon Stack of the Harper Institute, Dr. Thomas Merluzzi for the Psychology Department, and Dr. Maria del Rocio Baños Lara of UNE will share their current efforts and plans for future collaboration.
The Mexico Virtual Lecture Series is a weekly event highlighting the current work and partnerships between the University of Notre Dame and Mexico. Lecture topics include economic development and public finance, medicine and culture, and the spread of vector-borne diseases in Mexico.
The series is intended for a general audience and can be viewed via Zoom. Pre-registration for the session is requested and the Zoom link will be made available once registration is received.
