Joe Biden, the former vice president of the United States and leader of the White House Cancer Moonshot initiative, will speak in Omaha Tuesday.

Biden will deliver the closing remarks at the ribbon cutting/dedication of the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

Biden’s son, Beau, died of brain cancer in 2015 at age 46.

Biden has said he will spend the rest of his life fighting to eradicate the disease.

The cancer center is a collaborative effort of Nebraska Medicine and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

The new facility opens to patients in early June. It is the largest project ever for the University of Nebraska Medical Center and its clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine.

The project is located on the Omaha campus and includes:

• The Suzanne and Walter Scott Cancer Research Tower, a 10-story, 98-laboratory research tower;

• The C.L. Werner Cancer Hospital, an eight-story, 108-bed inpatient treatment center; and

• A multidisciplinary outpatient center which includes clinics, radiation oncology, surgery, radiology, a 24/7 treatment center, lab and collaborative treatment/diagnostics.

Attendance is limited for the ticketed event, and all tickets have been distributed. The public is encouraged to view the 2 p.m. dedication/ ribbon-cutting on a livestream at: https://www.unmc.edu/livevideo/campusforum.html.
