At the Annual Meeting and the Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research Conference, the chairperson discusses recent activities of the Steering Committee, invites discussion from the membership and frequently hosts a panel discussion or short guest talk on an issue relevant to the field. The meeting is followed by a networking reception.
On Monday evening, April 8, during the AACR Annual Meeting 2013, the MEG Town Hall featured Muin J. Khoury, Ph.D., director, Office of Public Health Genomics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Cancer Institute, Atlanta, GA, speaking on Shaping the Future of Cancer Epidemiology: Opportunities and Challenges.
Established in 2003, the MEG Award for Student Excellence in Molecular Epidemiology is awarded each year to three early-career scientists -- graduate students, medical students and residents, and clinical and postdoctoral fellows -- whose abstract accepted for presentation at the AACR Annual Meeting has been highly rated by the Program Committee. The purpose of the award is to highlight the work being done by talented early-career scientists and to promote the importance of the field to others who may be considering a career in the growing discipline of molecular epidemiology. Awardees are recognized at the MEG Town Meeting, and receive a complimentary year of membership in the Working Group.
To be considered for the MEG Award, Associate Members should indicate that they wish to be considered for a Scholar-in-Training Award when submitting an abstract in the online abstract submitter. All eligible candidates will automatically be considered.
