Cancer Biology Training Grant Retreat

Frontiers in Cancer Research

Seminar Presentation Contest

As part of the Cancer Retreat on May 4th we would like to include two oral presentations from former or current trainees of the Cancer Biology Training Grant and past or current winners of the Wagner Fellowship. These presentations will be 15 mins in length and will be integrated with those of our outside speakers. In addition to the oral presentation, the selected individuals will participate in a brief overview/literature review of the outside speakers' research and also attend dinner at the Colonnade Club on May 4th with the outside speakers.

To select the presenters the planning committee would like to request abstracts from interested eligible applicants. The abstracts should be < 300 words and clearly state the background, your findings, the physiological relevance of your work, and its relationship to cancer. The abstract should be primarily based on research performed by the applicant. Please note whether this work has been published or has been submitted for publication. The speakers will be selected from the abstracts by a faculty panel.

To allow for sufficient time to judge proposals, please submit your abstracts to Deborah Lannigan (dal5f@virginia.edu) by April 1st at 5 p.m. Please include your name and year and your mentor's name. The selected individuals will be notified by April 15th at 5 p.m.
