Data Discussion: Touring the Cushing Center and the Cushing Tumor Registry

“The brains are so cool!” All our visitors say that - but have you heard the story of how this collection came to be, and how researchers are still using these samples today? For Endangered Data Week, we’re offering this special tour exploring how Cushing Tumor Registry has survived a century, and still supports research today.

The Cushing Tumor Registry was endangered when researchers moved institutions, when key staffers retired or died, when funding streams dried up, and when environmental conditions threatened preservation. Could this happen to your project? Join Cushing Center Coordinator Terry Dagradi and Research and Education Librarian Kate Nyhan to discuss the continuing life of this extraordinary (and at one time, endangered) collection.

Please meet us near the circulation desk.
