The Comprehensive Cancer Center hosted its fifth annual Postdoctoral Symposium in February,
The symposium is an opportunity for postdoctoral and clinical fellows conducting cancer-related research to gain experience presenting formal talks or posters to faculty and other colleagues.
Forty-one abstracts were submitted this year, the highest number in the symposium’s history. Abstracts were reviewed by senior faculty members in the Cancer Center, and the top five were selected for oral presentations. A poster presentation followed the talks.
“The intellectual and research contributions of our postdoctoral and clinical fellows are the lifeblood of the Cancer Center, and it’s a pleasure to showcase their work,” said Charles Roberts, MD, PhD, Comprehensive Cancer Center director and executive vice president.
Presenters gave 8- to 10-minute talks, which were followed by brief question-and-answer sessions. The top three oral presenters and top six poster presenters received cash prizes.
