10th Anniversary Translational Oncology Symposium
A decade of fostering collaborations, fueling innovation & saving lives
Thursday, February 20, 2014
Join us at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center as we celebrate a decade of gathering the elite minds in oncology research, development and treatment to discuss the latest scientific discoveries and the issues that impact how those discoveries could be translated into new therapies, tools and diagnostics for cancer patients.
The MCC Translational Oncology Symposium is designed as an international forum to foster introductions, stimulate productive conversations among people of complementary interests and galvanize collaborations that will have a profound impact on patient health. It’s a melding of minds in the field of cancer research. Represented will be many of the different skill sets needed to bring a new drug to market – from the lab, through the commercialization process to the patient’s bedside.
