October 2016 Life Science Lunch – The Power of Normal

“The Power of Normal: Using Normal Controls in Breast Cancer Research”

October 20, 2015

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  IHIF and Barnes & Thornburg are pleased to present a special program highlighting important new research in the field.  The program will feature speakers from the Susan G. Komen Tissue Bank, a valuable biorepository right here in Central Indiana containing high quality normal breast tissue and blood samples for research and leading researchers who have used these samples to investigate new diagnostic tools and therapies.  Learn how to access the samples and why they play a critical role in the search for a cure.

Special introduction by The Catherine Peachey Fund

The Catherine Peachey Fund is a consumer-focused group of advocates fighting for a cure for breast cancer.  This 100% volunteer organization has funded more than $2.5 million dollars of breast cancer research in Indiana over the past twenty years.  You can help them fund research by purchasing Just Peachey: Bearing Fruit Cookbook.  Included in this beautiful, hard-cover book are over 500 recipes, along with a completely updated “Pink Pages” section with excerpts from The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book.  The production costs of this book have been underwritten, so that 100% of cookbook sales can be granted to important breast cancer research in Indiana.  Share Just Peachey: Bearing Fruit Cookbook as a gift for corporate clients or employees by taking advantage of this Special Promotion:  50% off Case Purchases (20 books per case).  The discounted price is $249.90 or only $12.50 per book when purchasing a full case of cookbooks.  Give a lasting and meaningful gift that supports breast cancer research right here in Indiana! – visit PeacheyFund.org for more information.
