100th AACR Annual Meeting
This year, the Undergraduate Student Caucus was attended by a diverse group of talented students coming from both community colleges and traditional four-year colleges and universities. Participants enjoyed a full day of events, including:
- a panel discussion led by scientific investigators ranging from graduate students to postdocs who addressed important issues relevant to scientific research and career development;
- a keynote address from prominent cancer researcher Dr. Donald Coffey, who inspired students to consider and commit to careers in cancer research;
- a competitive poster session which awarded students 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes for outstanding posters; and
- access to all Annual Meeting scientific sessions, the poster and exhibit hall, and much more!
