MICR is pleased to organize several professional development sessions each year that provide high-quality outreach, networking, mentoring and educational experiences for investigators at all stages in their development as scientists, but especially for early-career researchers. All are welcome to attend. Please use these links for upcoming events in your area.
Minorities in Cancer Research-organized Professional Advancement Sessions take place at AACR meetings and conferences and provide a forum in which students, postdocs and junior faculty can discuss important career development issues and survival skills with senior established scientists.
The Distinguished Lectureship Series brings together leading researchers who present the latest developments in cancer research to students and faculty at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSI). These lectures are intended to inspire young minority students and educators at MSIs to pursue cancer research.
This program matches AACR Minority-Serving Institution Faculty Scholar Awardees with excellent cancer scientist mentors who are based at National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Centers or Comprehensive Cancer Centers. Collaboratives mentors serve during one AACR Annual Meeting or Special Conference, and volunteers are needed.
