  1. Thank you Jude! I´ve registered already! Too bad the time doesn´t suit me very well.

  2. This is great, Jude, thank you for letting us know! Spreading the word...

    BTW, Dr. Parney is a co-director of the SPORE at Mayo (Specialized Program of Research Excellence funded by NIH). He is one of the leads on oncolytic virotherapy with the Measles virus:

  3. Was anyone able to participate? I was tied up until the last 15 minutes, so I'm hoping they'll make it available online soon. Guergana, thanks for the info. I'm off to read about it now.

  4. I was able to attend. Very much worth watching, the presentation is available as a youtube video:

    They covered a lot of ground including brain cancer clinical trials run at Mayo (17 of them). Talked about immunotherapy and virotherapy (and combination of both). There was a QA session, Drs. Parney and Porter answered many questions from the attendees. They will continue answering questions this week.
