The University of Rochester Medical Center and the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center is pleased to bring you the 18th Annual Scientific Symposium. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together scientists working in basic, translational and clinical cancer research. Activities will include oral presentations and a poster session.

Oral presentations (9:00 am – 1:00 pm) will feature our various research programs with one 20-minute talk each.  The poster themes for this year’s symposium are: Molecular and Cell Biology/Immunology, Experimental Hematology/Hematological Cancer, Solid Tumor Biology and Therapy, Cancer Control/Epidemiology

All members of the University community are invited to present posters on basic or clinical cancer-related research.  “Cancer-related” may be interpreted in the broadest sense. Posters are solicited from a wide variety of areas including molecular biology, virology, epidemiology, gene therapy, cancer treatment, and behavioral and outcomes research.

IMPORTANT: Posters must be marked clearly as belonging to one of the four programmatic categories indicated on the poster registration form.

Poster set-up will be in the morning beginning at 8:30am in order to allow poster presenters to set up prior to the morning talks. The poster session will take place from 1:00pm - 3:00pm.

POSTER PRIZES: Poster prizes for $100 each will be awarded to the best poster in each of the categories. In addition, a single grand prize will be awarded to an individual out of the group of winners. This individual will receive an additional $500 as a stipend for attending and presenting at a national/international scientific conference.
