AACR-MICR Distinguished Lectureship Series

MICR logoCo-chairs: Dr. Marcia Cruz-Correa and Dr. Wayne Bowen

The Minorities in Cancer Research (MICR) Council is extremely pleased to announce the AACR Distinguished Lectureship Series (DLS), a new MICR-organized program funded by the National Cancer Institute's Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities.

The DLS brings together leading researchers who present the latest developments in cancer research to students and faculty at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs). These lectures are intended to inspire young minority students and educators at MSIs to pursue cancer research.
