This annual event brings together cancer researchers, faculty and students, and is named for the former University of Illinois Cancer Center director, Dr. Gary Kruh, who specialized in the treatment of patients with lung cancer. His research focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms that enable cancer cells to resist chemotherapy agents.
