The USC School of Pharmacy, the USC Center for Excellence in Research and the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC have collaborated to present a Careers in Science lecture.
The lecture will be held on Friday, Sept. 13, from 3-6 p.m. in the conference room (BCC 101) at the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research building at USC.
Jean Cui, PhD, an associate research fellow at Pfizer, will speak on “From the Bench to the Clinic: Developing a Novel Cancer Therapeutic.” Cui has used structure-based design tools to identify and create Xalkori®, a novel therapeutic used for treating a rare and previously untreatable form of lung cancer.
Cui’s presentation will follow the complete path of drug development, from identification of the target protein c-Met to the discovery and development of specific inhibitors. Cui is the recipient of the 11th Women Worth Watching Award for the Class of 2013, recognizing female executives who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and leadership in their careers.
