CICR at the Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting is an extraordinary venue that fosters scientific discussions and helps build bridges across various disciplines. All annual meeting attendees are encouraged to capitalize on the opportunities during the meeting to learn about the latest breakthroughs in chemistry in cancer research, and network with other scientists and clinicians interested in the field, as well as to attend sessions outside your own areas of expertise.
