Elizabeth Repasky, PhD,  is Professor of Oncology, the William Huebsch Professor of Immunology, and is a Program Leader for the Cell Stress and Biophysical Therapies Program at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo NY.  Her major interest is to understand better the physiological and immunological consequences of stress signaling in the tumor microenvironment.  Thermal stress has been a major model system in her career. 


This seminar will touch upon some of the “big picture” issues providing the scientific rationale(s) for the application of thermal therapies in oncology.   Attention will be given to the pleiotropic effects of thermal stimuli and their broad effects in stress physiology and immunology.   Dr. Repasky will emphasize new work from her laboratory demonstrating a fundamental association between mild thermoregulatory stress and anti-tumor immunity.   It is expected that this presentation will be interactive with members of the audience and will be especially useful to young investigators in the field of thermal oncology who are interested in  identifying new areas of research and in solving  the challenges which exist in this field.
