Sunset Seminar / From Shark Bites to Repairing Human Hearts—A Maine Tale / Dr. Kevin Strange
August 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
For decades, scientists have been defeated in their attempts to find a treatment that reverses the life-threatening damage caused by heart attacks. Now, thanks to scientific research taking place in Bar Harbor, Maine, that may all be changing. To find out how, come to the Camden Yacht Club on Wednesday August 14th at 7 PM to hear from Dr. Kevin Strange, CEO and Co-Founder of Bar Harbor-based Novo Biosciences. Dr. Strange will explain how a tale of shark bites at a Scottish Pub led him and his colleagues to identify the first and only drug candidate to stimulate a damaged heart to repair itself.
Dr. Strange is an internationally recognized biomedical scientist, scientific leader and entrepreneur. In 2017, he was recognized as one of 50 Mainers “charting the state’s future” and “leading by example.” He is also the recipient of numerous awards including the John C. Parker Endowed Chair, the Pittinger Award for Excellence in Basic Research, the B.E. Smith Mentorship Award, and the American Heart Association Established Investigator Award.
