A Day of Science Discovery for Students & Their Families


A day to showcase how researchers and clinicians at the Rogel Cancer Center are getting us one day closer to a cure for cancer. Area high school students and their families are invited to come learn about cancer research through interactive activities and booths, short research talks, and lab tours. We hope this event will inspire the next generation of scientists and clinicians, so we can ensure a strong future in our fight against cancer.
