Cancer Center Research Symposium

Join us on July 9
8 am to 4:30 pm
Hilton Garden Inn, Stony Brook

This year’s research symposium will highlight translational cancer science within each of the three Stony Brook Cancer Center Research Programs. The goal of this year’s symposium is to promote the collaboration between our basic and our clinical scientist. To accomplish this, three sessions are planned with representation from each of the three research programs. Within each session, we have invited clinical and basic cancer scientists to give presentations that emphasize the need for a translational bridge in their work.
