Brain cancer is one of modern medicine’s greatest mysteries and biggest challenges. At ABC2, we work side-by-side with researchers who are willing to venture into the unknown, take risks and provide maps and knowledge for others to follow. 

Join us for a brain cancer research panel co-moderated by Max Wallace, President & CEO, ABC2, and Don Lo, PhD, Director, Center for Drug Discovery at Duke University Medical Center, with a reception to follow.

For those unable to attend in person at the National Geographic Grosvenor Auditorium, a LIVE WEBCAST of the discussion is scheduled to begin at 6:00pm EDT. 


ABC2 is pleased to present the stories of three pioneering researchers:

• Dr. Keith Ligon, MD, PhD, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute He pushes the limits of science and technology to bring robust genomic profiling to brain cancer patients.

• Dr. Greg Riggins, MD, PhD, Johns Hopkins Medicine He discovered a parasite treatment that may help people with brain cancer.

• Dr. Catherine Flores, PhD, University of Florida She blazes new trails training the immune system to attack cancer cells.


Please Register by October 17th 

Please join us afterwards to mingle with the researchers at a wine reception with heavy appetizers.
