Origins of Cancer is a one-day symposium that brings together students, scientists and medical professionals to discuss the latest breakthroughs in cancer research. This year’s meeting will highlight the tumor macroenvironment, which comprises near and far cells, tissues and systems that interact with primary cancer cells to promote tumor survival. Invited speakers also will discuss novel and integrative treatment approaches that target this larger interactome to outsmart cancer cells.
Origins of Cancer is a one-day symposium that features a wide range of exciting talks, discussions and networking opportunities with experts, researchers, and up-and-coming leaders in the field of cancer biology. This year’s theme, Beyond the Margins: Exploring the Tumor Macroenvironment, focuses on the tissues and systems that interact with primary cancer cells to promote tumor survival.
The symposium planning committee invites researchers to submit poster abstracts for presentation at the 2020 annual symposium in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This is an opportunity to share your cancer research with colleagues. We welcome all abstracts related to the field of cancer biology. Investigators at all career stages are encouraged to submit an abstract. One trainee abstract will be selected for an oral presentation during the symposium.
Abstracts will be peer reviewed. Acceptance will be based on content, available space and overall program balance. Poster presentations will take place during lunch on Friday, July 24, 2020 during the symposium.
