Meeting: USC PSOC ThinkTank Workshop (Invite only)
Now taking applications for junior investigators! Click here!
The goal of this ThinkTank workshop is to both identify critical challenges in oncology and to evaluate the potential of innovative approaches for solving them. Noting that this area is incredibly new, part of our objective will be to give junior investigators (i.e., assistant professors and post-docs) an opportunity to work with more senior investigators and get direct mentorship on how to overcome the challenges associated with working in this highly interdisciplinary field. We are now taking applications for junior investigators! Click here to apply!
