The Reading Project Film Series presents a screening of Targeting Tumor Cells: New Strategies in Targeting Cancer, in conjunction with the Tulane Reading Project.
The first test of its kind, the Pap smear was designed to test cells before they become cancerous. Doctors are using similar methods to search for cancer in other parts of the body, especially when hereditary issues are a factor. In this program, medical experts explore emerging procedures for cancer screening and prevention, and explain how constant advancements in medicine are expanding the ways that cancer is prevented and treated. Specific methods and tools discussed include endoscopes, new drugs, lasers, and even robots. (26 minutes)
Film Series screenings enhance the Tulane Reading Project experience, giving students an opportunity to expand their knowledge about issues raised by this year’s Reading Project book and discussion group sessions.
