Cancer: Cells to Society

Mark your calendar for this seminar series for Rogel Cancer Center Trainees

This series will provide everyone working in the cancer field with a solid high-level understanding of the most important current issues and advances in cancer research. The focus will be on cancer research, specifically where the field is now and where it's going?

Topics are to be of broad-ranging interest and accessible to all disciplines -- this is not a deep dive -- it is an opportunity to bring together trainees to enhance team science.

Talks will be delivered at a high level designed for anyone working in the cancer field to understand, regardless of specialty. Each seminar will include two presenters, and organizers hope to foster some friendly debate.
