CRINA Events

Leaders in Cancer Research

CRINA's Leaders in Cancer Research seminar series for the 2016/2017 academic year features  world-class pioneers in cancer research that are presenting a breadth of topics that cover the three CRINA research themes: 

The scope of these talks tries to encompass many of the cancer research areas that CRINA members are currently working in.
