The Canada Gairdner Symposiums feature current cutting edge themes for biomedical science. In partnership with the Gairdner Foundation, CRINA is proud to host a two-day Symposium titled Cancer Discoveries: Molecules to Man
that will take place on Wednesday, May 25th and Thursday, May 26th, 2016
We have confirmed 19 world-renowned cancer researchers, some of whom have won the Gairdner International Award—a precursor to the Nobel Prize—to partake in the event. The researchers are experts in topics such as immunotherapy, targeted therapies, cancer metabolism, genomics and prevention. This symposium will feature a U of A trainee poster session with a focus on multidisciplinary and translational cancer research to facilitate knowledge exchange between departments and faculties. There will also be a public lecture featuring Dr. Dennis Slamon whose pioneering work lead to the use of Herceptin for the treatment of breast cancer.
This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by the University of Calgary Office of Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development.
