Conference also to feature talks by three other Hutch scientists:
- Dr. Mark Roth on new methods for diagnosing lupus
- Dr. Jerald Radich on detecting the 'genetic fingerprints' of leukemia
- Dr. Dusty Miller on 'interrogating the human genome'
Where will biotechnology be in the year 2050? How will it affect our lives?
What technologies will most influence our future research direction? How will
these changes affect the development of new drugs and other products?
Dr. Lee Hartwell, president and director of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center, will join four other biotechnology leaders in addressing such questions
during a symposium entitled "Visions of Biotechnology Pioneers" from 8 to 9:30
a.m. Monday, May 17. The symposium is part of BIO '99, an international
biotechnology meeting and exhibition to be held May 16 to 20 at the Washington
State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle.
Hartwell is a recipient of the prestigious Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research
Award and is internationally known for his work in yeast genetics.
Joining Hartwell in addressing the future of biotechnology will be the
University of Washington's Dr. Edwin Krebs, 1992 recipient of the Nobel Prize
for Physiology in Medicine; Dr. George Rathmann, founder and former president
and CEO of Amgen; the University of British Columbia's Michael Smith, 1993 Nobel
Prize recipient in chemistry; and Dr. Kathryn Zoon, director of the Center for
Biologics Evaluation and Research at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The
symposium will be moderated by KCTS-TV business analyst Barry Mitzman.
From 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. the same day, three Hutchinson Center scientists will
participate in a technology-transfer forum that will present leading candidate
technologies from 20 top research institutions.
Presenting from the Hutch will be:
- Dr. Mark Roth of the Basic Sciences Division, who will speak about a new,
antigen-based method for diagnosing sys
