IRIC- Université de Montréal
It is with great pleasure that we announce the 9th IRIC International Symposium on Molecular Targets in Cancer Genomics that will take place in Montreal, Canada on May 14-15th, 2015.
Hosted by the graduate students and postdoctoral fellows of the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC), this Symposium is built around the common interests of IRIC students. The goal of this Symposium is to provide an environment which generates stimulating discussions of both basic and translational research. Furthermore, its focus will be on translating the molecular basis of cancer into functional understanding of aberrant cancer pathways, as well as uncovering novel targets that could be exploited for cancer therapeutic strategies.
The 2015 Symposium will build on the success of the previous IRIC symposia that were widely praised for the quality of the scientific programs and enthusiasm of participants. It will bring together a panel of pre-eminent researchers in the fields of genomic instability, epigenetics, RNA regulatory targets and integrative genomic approaches in cancer therapy, thus providing participants with exceptional educational opportunities and an excellent platform for networking.
We encourage students to communicate their findings in the format of poster presentations to stimulate the exchange of ideas and promote collaborations. Among the submitted abstracts, four will be selected for 15-minute oral presentations.
We look forward to your participation in this exciting symposium which promises to be a unique interdisciplinary educational experience.
