Susan G. Komen Scholar Series

March, 12, 2020 - Kevin Roarty was the Keynote Speaker for the Susan G. Komen Scholar Series of the North & West Texas Chapter. It was a pleasure to meet the organizers, patients, and advocates during this special event. It was also nice to be able to share our research on breast cancer, communicate how Susan G. Komen supports our research endeavors on metastasis and therapeutic resistance, and educate the community on why supporting science is so important. Very inspiring to be a part of this event.

Breast Disease Research Seminar Series
