Stony Brook Cancer Center Research Retreat

July 9, 2021
9 am - 3:30 pm
Virtual Zoom

This year’s Cancer Center Research Retreat will highlight basic and translational cancer science within each of our Cancer Center’s Research Programs. Building on our progress over the past several years, the goal of this year’s retreat is to continue to enhance collaborations between our basic and our clinical scientist. To this end, we have developed an agenda that includes brief (8 min) presentations from 15 speakers, representing each of our three research programs (ODMC, IBES, and LSMC). In addition, the retreat will feature updates from the leaders of each of our three programs, a poster session, and presentation of awards.
