Trainees' Poster Session

The Cancer Center would like to invite graduate students and postdoctoral research and clinical fellows to submit an abstract for consideration for a poster display at the Retreat. This is a great opportunity for trainees to share their cancer-focused research projects and network with colleagues. Prizes in each category will be awarded.

The deadline for poster abstract submission is March 17. As there are a limited number of slots for posters, those whose poster are selected for display at the Retreat will be notified by March 28 of acceptance. For more information and instructions on how to submit, visit the Call for Posters page on the Cancer Center website.
