The Magic of Microbubbles - Marquam Hill Lecture

One in every four deaths in the United States is caused by heart disease. Coronary heart disease – the most common type – accounts for 380,000 deaths annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Sanjiv Kaul, M.D. Ernest C. Swigert distinguished professor of cardiology and professor of medicine in the OHSU School of Medicine, pioneered a powerfully effective screening test for the early detection of coronary heart disease. Used more than five million times in patients around the world, myocardial contrast echocardiography combines microbubbles and ultrasound technology to create images of the heart. Dr. Kaul, who is also co-director of the OHSU Knight Cardiovascular Institute, believes these tiny bubbles will someday help detect and treat other ailments, including cancer. Find out what’s next in this breakthrough field of research, and see how the magic of microbubbles helps detect disease before it becomes deadly. Event Type: Lecture/Seminar.

Declaring War on Melanoma - Marquam Hill Lecture

Watch out melanoma. We’re teaming up to get you. Those words capture the sentiment of OHSU’s aggressive campaign to prevent, detect and treat melanoma. Sancy Leachman, M.D. Ph.D. professor and chair of dermatology in the OHSU School of Medicine, is a world-renowned melanoma researcher who is determined to find answers and reduce deaths caused by melanoma. Oregon consistently has one of the highest rates of melanoma incidence and death in the nation, particularly for women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Why is melanoma so common in a state that is known more for rain than sunshine? A team of researchers at OHSU, in collaboration with patients, their family and friends, have created the Melanoma Community Registry – a first step in the “war” to make melanoma the victim. Join us for practical information about melanoma and to learn what’s on the horizon for this type of cancer. Event Type: Lecture/Seminar. Series Title: Marquam Hill Lecture Series.
