Dr. Judit E. Puskas,
Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Professor of Polymer Science, Integrated Bioscience and Chemistry,
will present her cutting edge research on combining breast reconstruction with cancer treatment,Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. at The Hungarian Congress held at the Cleveland Airport Marriott Hotel,4277 West 150th St., Cleveland, OH 44135.
Just a short quote from Dr. Puskas: Back in 2000, I was listening to a radio program on public radio and was inspired by a story about the thousands of women who wanted and needed breast implants and were frustrated because there was a government ban on silicone implants.
This inspired me to use my knowledge of material science to develop a safer form of breast reconstruction. After realizing we could combine reconstruction with the delivery of drugs to actually cure cancer, I committed myself to using my background as a material scientist to do both.
