The Queen's University Departments of Surgery and Urology invite you to a special presentation by:

Professor Zoltan Takats, PhD - Faculty of Medicine, Department of Surgery, Imperial College London, UK

"What Do the Molecules Tell Us? - The quiet revolution of chemical information"

Precision medicine requires precise information to be presented to the surgeon in real time while in the operating room. "Am I free of cancer? Did you get it all?" are the questions every surgeon is asked by their patient.

With new technology and an understanding of the molecular biology of cancer cells, we are entering an age when the surgeon can leave the operating room with confidence and say "yes.... we got it all".

Join us as Dr. Takats talks about his invention, the iKnife, an operative tool that can detect cancer at the time of surgery and the implications this technology will have on future surgeries.


All are welcome!

Refreshments at 4:30pm | Lecture from 5:00-6:00pm
