Sutherland is a Platinum Sponsor of the MIT Enterprise Forum of Atlanta's "Cancer Vaccine" event scheduled April 30, 2008, on Georgia Public Broadcasting. As science unravels the intricacies of the immune system, more and more vaccines are becoming possible to prevent, treat and cure cancer. Speakers for this third broadcast in the Enterprising Georgia series will present: how the first preventive cancer vaccine was developed to impact a difficult to reach population and what its impact has been; strategies for harnessing the immune system to fight cancer; and the choices and the scientific challenges for two of the world's largest vaccine companies – Merck (human vaccines) and Merial (animal vaccines) – in targeting cervical cancer and canine melanoma for major investments. After the keynote presentation, the speakers will join the live and satellite audiences in exploring the near- and long-term future of life-saving cancer vaccines.
