On February 28, 2019, the National Science and Technology Medals Foundation will host An Evening With Stephen Lippard and Ted Love at Haverford College. Dr. Lippard, a Haverford College alumnus, is the Arthur Amos Noyes Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at MIT whose work focuses on the role of metals in biological systems. He is best known for his work on the anti-cancer drug cisplatin, which contains platinum and is a first-line therapy for many cancers. His foundational work on platinum-based anticancer drugs has paved the way for other researchers working to develop cancer treatments. Dr. Lippard’s work has also helped advance cleaner fuel technologies, and shed light on the role of metal ions in signaling processes in the brain.

Following the interview discussion, the audience will be able to ask questions of Dr. Lippard and Dr. Love during an open Q&A session. A reception with light refreshments and limited edition SWAG will follow the program.
