Molecular Oncology Events

Molecular Oncology Events

The Department of Molecular Oncology organizes a variety of different events such as recurring seminar series, working groups, and scientific conferences. These events are intended to foster intra- and inter-departmental collaborations and to stimulate scientific discussion. They also provide a platform for both trainees and faculty to solicit feedback on ongoing research directions and to hone presentations skills.

Faculty Meetings

Research in Progress Seminar Series

Research In Progress (MO-RIP) Seminar Series

This seminar series is designed to encourage vibrant discussions, build professional camaraderie among the members of our department, and provide an opportunity for everyone to present at least once during the calendar year. Contact Michael Mann for more info.

Annual Departmental Retreat

The annual Molecular Oncology Retreat is a highly anticipated event that showcases the breadth and depth of research in our department. We take this opportunity to recognize the scientific accomplishments of our postgraduate and pre-doctoral trainees and to foster team-building within the department at all levels. The retreat contributes to the scientific growth of the department as a venue to facilitate new research collaborations among faculty and trainees.
