National Cancer Insitute Global Research Day

Friday, February 22, 2013

NCI's Global Cancer Research Day will be held in Washington, DC on March 13th in conjunction with the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) Annual Meeting on March 14-16, 2013. 

The meeting aims to engage a diverse range of participants including both cancer researchers and global health professionals who may not necessarily have specific cancer expertise, but have an interest in exploring the intersection between global health and cancer. The Global Cancer Research Day meeting will utilize a highly interactive format to engage the cancer research and global health communities in a rich dialogue about cross-cutting issues. Topics explored will include capacity building, cancers related to infectious diseases (including HIV-related malignancies), lessons learned in global health and tapping into the global health community's expertise, training and education, effective collaboration with LMIC professionals, and other topics that span the global health and cancer fields. 

NCI Director Dr. Harold Varmus has been invited as a featured speaker to provide insight into his vision of moving global cancer research efforts forward. 

The meeting is open to all interested parties pending space availability. Register for free at:
