Neil King, Ph.D.

Within the last few years, Dr. King and his colleagues at the IPD have been able to harness protein complexity: to begin to design new proteins the way we would a new computer chip or smart phone. Dr. King will discuss this revolution in protein design, centered at the IPD, and describe efforts underway to create better vaccines and therapeutics.

Elizabeth Swisher, M.D., Res. ’93
UW Professor and Chief, Division of Gynecologic Oncology

Most hereditary cancers are preventable if risk is identified prior to a cancer diagnosis. Dr. Swisher will describe how her team is identifying genetic causes of ovarian cancer, breaking down barriers to genetic testing and bringing affordable testing to patients in their living room.
