About This Event
The theme of this year’s retreat is “Cancer and Aging” and we are excited to announce we will have three invited keynote speakers, in addition to internal speakers selected from abstract submission or by Cancer Center leadership. Agenda pending and will update as it becomes final.
There will also be a trainee competition (in place of traditional poster session) where predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows at UT Health San Antonio, whose mentors are cancer center members (either full or associate), will showcase their cancer research projects. Projects presented must be cancer-related, but do not necessarily have to be related to the symposium theme. Judging will be conducted by a panel of Mays Cancer Center members during the symposium and awards presented for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both predoctoral and postdoctoral categories. Only students and postdoctoral fellows (both basic and clinical) are eligible for awards. For additional details and information on the symposium program, registration and abstract submission for the poster session, please visit our website at UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center Symposium.
This symposium is supported by the Mays Cancer Center of UT Health San Antonio through the NCI Cancer Center Support Grant (P30 CA054174).
The symposium is organized by the Mays Cancer Center Education Committee with help from Research Administration Staff.
