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. We hope that this initiative will inspire clinicians, scientists and trainees to work together and produce innovative translational research findings, which will ultimately help to improve healthcare outcomes for cancer patients worldwide.
