Ask Us Anything | Talk with Lung Cancer Researchers on Nov. 16 on HealthUnlocked

We are excited to share that Adam Marcus PhD and Suresh Ramalingam MD will be hosting an "Ask Us Anything" session on November 16 from 1 - 2pm Eastern Time.

During this hour, be sure to join us here on the Free to Breathe HealthUnlocked community for the opportunity to ask questions and get live answers to questions about lung cancer research and the future of personalized cancer medicine.

Adam Marcus is an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Hematology and Oncology, a former Georgia Cancer Coalition Scholar, and directs a federally funded cancer research laboratory. His research focuses on understanding how cancer cells become malignant with the goal of developing new treatments that could help stop the spread of cancer. He also runs a science education community outreach program that brings microscopes into classrooms across Georgia.

You can find him on Twitter @NotMadScientist & his blog writing about personalized medicine at notamadscientist.com

Suresh Ramalingam is the Chief of Thoracic Oncology at Winship Cancer Institute. He leads a multi-disciplinary team for the treatment of lung cancer and is a well-known specialist in thoracic oncology. His research focuses on development of new treatments for lung cancer, including immunotherapies and targeted drugs. Dr. Ramilingam also has a strong interest in early phase clinical trials with novel translational endpoints to identify molecular effects of experimental agents. His work has lead to more than 200 publications.

The post that will host the Ask Me Anything will be created on Wednesday. The title will be labeled with "Now Live"

We hope to see all of you there!

  • I am looking forward to this! It's always fascinating to hear directly from researchers.

  • That is really great that will help us under stand why the cancer cells got turned on and hopefuly be able to turn them back off and keep them off. I will have some things to ask. Jo

  • Where is the actual post/video -- I love to see it, but can't find it?

  • The post will go up a few minutes before the event takes place. We will share the link around and update the link in the photo to the right of our newsfeed with it.

  • Can you tell me what time it is expected to start -- I read 1-2 PM, but in what time ZONE? I'm USA Eastern Time! Thank you!

  • 1 - 2PM Eastern Time. So in about 40 minutes.

  • Thank you! I missed the fine print ! I'll be back shortly!! For some reason I thought it would based on UK time?

  • Ah, sorry for the confusion. Since Free to Breathe is a US based organization, we usually post event information in our timezones. Great questions though!
