Course Overview

The Stanford Cancer Institute invites graduate students and postdoctoral students (residents, clinical fellows and research fellows) from Stanford University, the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) and San Francisco State University (SFSU) to attend the Fifth Annual Comprehensive Cancer Research Training Program.

The Stanford Cancer Institute will host this course Monday, September 12, to Friday, September 16, 2011, at the Quadrus Conference Center, 2400 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, Calif.

This dynamic, educational event features a daily plenary session on a topic of general interest followed by nine half-day sessions on two scientific themes, each with three to four presentations. Nationally and internationally renowned faculty from Stanford and UCSF will present 32 didactic lectures and discussions on current topics of basic, translational, and clinical cancer research.

This ambitious curriculum will provide participants with a unique, comprehensive introduction to the vanguard of cancer research.  In addition, participants are invited to present their own research during a poster session on September 14, 2011.
