In 2009, Dr. Patrick Lee made a breakthrough finding about the human reovirus, a naturally occurring virus that can attack cancer stem cells while not destroying other cells. Dr. Lee is also researching the protein "p53" and its ability to suppress tumors. Understanding and harnessing the applications of both of these discoveries could be the road to finding a cure. He holds the Dr. Owen and Mrs. Pearle Cameron Chair in Basic Cancer Research, and is a professor of pathology, microbiology & immunology at Dalhousie University.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
