Event description
The Brigham Research Institute (BRI) will be hosting a new Cancer Research Talk series.

About this event

The BRI will be hosting a new Cancer Research Talk series to provide a forum for the community of BWH investigators working on cancer-related topics to convene, share ideas and potentially form collaborations.

Each session will feature two short talks from 4:00 - 5:00 PM on the first Wednesday of every month. After the talks, there will be a social hour from 5:00 - 6:00 PM with food and drink to encourage discussions and interactions.

These events are open to all. Please join us to meet your colleagues, learn about their research and potentially form a new collaboration!

The BRI is going bottled-water free! As it has been stated “more than 17 million barrels of oil are required to produce enough plastic water bottles to meet America’s annual demand for bottled water” and every year, 8 million metric tons of plastics enter our ocean. We hope as an institution and department to become more environmentally friendly. We encourage other departments to do the same! Please don’t forget to bring your filled reusable water bottles to all of our BRI events. Thank you.
