The Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) hosts periodic Public Forums to introduce the campus and local community to some of the center’s advanced research, as it relates to topics of widespread interest. The center’s sixth Public Forum will focus on “Women’s Health” and will take place on Thursday, March 27, from noon to 2 p.m. in the CBIS Auditorium.

The “Women’s Health” program will include presentations of current research on osteoporosis, breast cancer, and cardiovascular health. Moderator and CBIS Associate Director Glenn Monastersky will make opening comments.

Deepak Vashishth, CBIS director and professor of biomedical engineering, will address the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis, as well as the center’s work on bone tissue engineering. Lee Ligon, associate professor of biology, will discuss breast cancer research, and Rebecca Keller, associate professor of cardiovascular science at Albany Medical College, will speak about cardiovascular and heart issues, especially as they relate to women’s health.

The speaker comments will be followed by a moderated panel discussion, with questions from the audience. The forum is open to the Rensselaer community and the general public.
