"The Social Mission of Medicine"
Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall, Dartmouth College
7:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Medicine prevents, heals, and palliates. Enormous progress was made in all three modalities during the 20th century. Who benefitted from these advances-in the United States and in the world? What are the prospects for the future? The social mission of medicine, it will be argued, goes beyond science to the difficult but essential moral questions of opportunity and equity.

Jones Seminar: "Blinking Tumors-and Other New Ways to Molecularly Image and Treat Cancer"
Spanos Auditorium (Rm 100), Cummings Hall
Thayer School of Engineering
3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
This seminar will explore new ideas and methods to optically image and treat cancer, including the use of magnetomotive molecular probes that dynamically respond to applied magnetic fields and cause tumors to blink, targeted microspheres agents that can deliver drugs to specific sites in the body, optical probes that do not fluorescence but rather scatter and absorb light, and nonlinear optical techniques that can generate images of cancer based on the endogenous molecules.
