CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium 23. November 2017
We have the pleasure of inviting you to attend the upcoming CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium, November 23rd 2017.
We hope you are looking forward to the next upcoming CCBIO JR scientist symposium 23. November 2017 - CCBIO postdocs and PhD candidates should make sure not to miss it!
Participants have the opportunity to enjoy networking with fellow PhD students, post-docs and other colleagues. The tentative program should provide an appealing update on local cancer research.
First, we will hear from the director of CCBIO, Lars A. Akslen, initiating the 15th CCBIO JR scientist symposium. The key lecture is to be held by Stian Knappskog, with promise to present recent work on patterns of genomic evolution in metastatic breast cancer, published in Cancer Cell. Additional topics include, AML, breast- and endometrial cancer, as well as how young scientist should relate and interact with the media by Marion Solheim.
