Annual Cancer Research Symposium
Since 2011, the SCC has hosted an Annual Cancer Research Symposium to provide an interactive forum for cancer center members, other interested researchers, and students to share their research. The Symposium is organized into tracks for Basic / Translation, Clinical, and Behavioral / Population Sciences and features thematically focused oral presentations and panel discussions. More than 80 poster slots are reserved for graduate and postdoctoral students, and prizes are awarded annually to the top posters in the basic, clinical, behavioral and population sciences. The Symposium now hosts more than 250 participants annually.
International Ovarian Cancer Consortium Conference
The International Ovarian Cancer Consortium was organized by SCC member Dr. Danny Dhanasekaran, in collaboration with intra and extramural colleagues, as an international forum of experts who can contribute to the state-of-the-science in ovarian cancer and tumor microenvironment research. This group of national and international experts now meets annually at the SCC to present research and exchange ideas.
2019 Conference Agenda
END2CANCER: Emerging Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery Applications for Cancer
The goal of the END2CANCER conference is to bridge laboratory research conducted in the areas of nanotechnology and drug delivery to clinical applications for the detection, diagnosis, imaging and treatment of cancer. The conference features keynote, plenary and invited lectures by eminent scientists who discuss new and emerging concepts, technologies, and challenges in translating nanomedicine from bench to bedside. The inaugural conference was held December of 2017 and was organized by Dr. Rajagopal Ramesh, Co-Leader of the SCC’s Cancer Biology Program.
