New Mexico PBS March Science Café presents a segment from Ken Burns' new series “Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies,” on Saturday, March 28, from 10 a.m. to noon at the UNM Cancer Center, 1201 Camino de Salud NE. The event is free and open to the public.

Physicians discuss two major advances in cancer research: “personalized” medicine, resulting from advances in human genome science, and new discoveries about how to harness the body’s immune system to fight cancer.

The March NM PBS Science Café is sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories, Lockheed Martin and the University of New Mexico Cancer Center.

Science Café is designed to be for the entire family. Parents and grand­parents are strongly encouraged to bring their budding engineers and scientists along. Admission is free, but a reservation is required. Seats are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. RSVP to Rose Poston, community outreach coordinator, KNME Education & Outreach Department at 277‑2396 or
