DF/HCC African Cancer Webinar Series

The DF/HCC African Science Webinar series offers remote participation through Zoom (zoom.us). We have launched this series to provide a forum for African cancer researchers to present and discuss current cancer research in Africa. This seminar series will be broadcast to researchers around the globe and recorded for subsequent viewing.

The series runs on the third Thursday of every month.
