As important discoveries being made at the fundamental level in cancer research and that great efforts are being made towards translational research, the need to bring together scientists with complementary knowledge and expertise becomes critical to ensure the success of such undertakings. It is with this in mind that IRIC in association with its student body representative, AERIC, are putting together their 6th annual symposium entitled: "Technological Frontiers in Cancer Research", which highlights the latest and most innovative technological advancements, their diverse applications as well as their impact on cancer research. This symposium also aims to bring together leading edge scientists from diverse, yet complimentary, backgrounds to share their innovative work and provide insights into the emerging challenges in the cancer research field. The symposium will feature four plenary sessions by thought leaders in the field. There will be poster sessions and cocktails for networking. Please register early and come learn from 16 leading investigators as they share their newest findings and ideas.
We look forward to seeing you in Montréal!
