KINGSTON – The Louis Maslow STEM School at Wyoming Seminary will present a lecture titled “Cutting-edge Cancer Research” Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Buckingham Performing Arts Center, North Sprague Avenue, Kingston. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Researchers and faculty members from The Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton will discuss emerging trends and research in cancer diagnosis and treatment. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer period.

The Commonwealth Medical College, founded in 2008, focuses its biomedical research and training programs on regional health issues prevalent in Northeastern Pennsylvania, a 16-county region with 1.8 million residents. The profile of disease in the region indicates high levels of some cancers (breast, lung, colorectal, prostate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma), and chronic diseases associated with aging, as well as significant needs in primary care, mental health, and community medicine.

This lecture is part of a monthly series presented by the Louis Maslow STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) School at Wyoming Seminary and developed by Rachel Bartron, STEM School director. The lectures are intended to show the integration and application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics across disciplines and within society. For more information contact Bartron at rbartron@wyomingseminary.org.

The Louis Maslow STEM School at Wyoming Seminary seeks to engage and inspire students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics through holistic and integrated paths of study.
