Presentation Abstract

This presentation discusses the progress we are making regarding the efficacy of our novel synthesized hybrid dihydropyridine derivatives as potential anti-invasive drugs against a rare and extremely lethal brain cancer called glioblastoma. This cancer, for which there is currently no effective treatment, has been in the news recently as the cause of death for former U.S. Senator John McCain. The presentation will cover the purpose, design and strategy of the project and the work that has been accomplished to date.
