Objectives of the OHSU Knight Cancer Biology Research Group Meetings

Cross-departmental workshop composed of students, postdocs, and faculty with shared interest in basic principles and emerging discoveries in Cancer Biology. The goals of the meetings and this wiki:

  • Establish a challenging and interactive cross-departmental focus group that will advance understanding of our individual projects and encourage collaborations.
  • Provide students and postdocs with training and interactions with faculty interested in Cancer Biology and emerging therapeutics

These meetings are now expanded to include a Translational Cancer Research Group Meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to:

  • Serve to foster a Knight translational research incubator for projects and teams leading to multi-investigator cancer program/SPORE funding including the Solid tumors and Hematologic Malignancies programs and the Systems Biology group.
  • Meetings will include thematic research and clinical research talks with collaborative and developmental potential and Brainstorming Sessions.
