Researcher Roundtable, Thursday, March 25

Researcher Roundtable, Thursday, March 25

On Thursday, March 25, 2021, Tina’s Wish hosted its second Virtual Researcher Roundtable with Tina’s Wish researchers Andrew K. Godwin, PhD and Steven Soper, PhD of The University of Kansas, moderated by Tina’s Wish Leadership Council Member Laureen Ryan of Alvarez & Marsal. Drs. Godwin and Soper are working to develop a non-invasive, highly specific blood-based test (liquid biopsy) for pre-symptomatic screening and early detection of ovarian cancer. During the discussion, Dr. Godwin explained that “developing non-invasive and highly specific blood-based tests, or ‘liquid biopsies’ for the pre-symptomatic screening and early detection of ovarian cancer is the holy grail.”  Attendees had the exclusive opportunity to learn more about the researchers’ exciting progress and ask them questions.
