The University of Toronto’s Alumni Event and Landmark Project in the Crystal Ballroom at the Fairmont Palliser
A Beginner’s Guide to Killing Cancer Cells by Professor Patrick Gunning
The evening started off with a mix and mingle that was catered by the staff at the Fairmont Palliser. Once everyone had their seats Assistant Vice-President of U of T Alumni Relations Barbara Dick welcomed everyone, introduced the University’s Landmark Project (https://landmark.utoronto.ca/) a project that is going to transform U of T’s historic core, and finally introduced the evenings keynote speaker Professor Patrick Gunning.
Professor Gunning presentation took the alumni through the seemingly insurmountable challenges that he and his drug discovery team face in developing new drug molecules to fight the most rare and lethal of human cancers, including glioblastoma (brain cancer) and acute myeloid leukaemia (blood cancer).
From navigating the obstacles of the human body to the complexities of creating molecules that target cancer-promoting proteins, Professor Gunning breaks down the drug development process to show how hard work—and a bit of luck—can lead to new, less toxic drugs for clinical trials.
It was a great evening for the University of Toronto’s Alumni to not only reconnect with one another but to also learn about some of the ground breaking work that is done at the University.
